Step 3

Sauté onion and leek in hot drippings 15 minutes or until tender and golden.

Step 4

Stir together onion mixture, bacon, cream cheese, sour cream, and salt. Cover and chill 1 hour.

Step 5

Cut about 1/2 to 1 inch from top of squash; remove and discard seeds.

Step 6

Heat a small skillet over medium-high heat. Place squash, cut side down, in skillet, and cook 3 to 5 minutes or until cut side is golden brown and caramelized. Serve dip in squash with assorted chips. Garnish, if desired.
