Everyone has a different love language and mine is food. I show you I care by making you something special and yummy. So when my teacher friends went back to school this year, I made them this Easy BLT Dip to wish them a successful school year 🙂

This was perfect timing because I had some gorgeous garden fresh tomatoes and chives!

Everything you need is shown below, it’s super easy to make but also extraordinarily scrumptious!

I mean, you really can’t go wrong with anything that has bacon and cheese, right?!

How to Make EASY BLT Dip

The first step is setting a skillet over medium heat.

And use kitchen scissors to cut a pound of bacon into the skillet, aiming for bite size pieces.

Cook the bacon, stirring a few times, for 5 to 7 minutes. Then remove the bacon and place on paper towels to drain the excess grease.

Next put 16 oz sour cream, an 8 oz block cream cheese, 1/2 cup mayo, a ranch mix packet, kosher salt, and pepper in a large bowl.

Helpful hint: The cream cheese is MUCH easier to mix if it’s room temperature 🙂

Use a hand mixer and mix this for about 1 minute.

Add to the bowl half of the bacon, a cup of shredded cheese, and some green onions (or in my case I am using chives from my garden).

Mix this together with a spoon and spread it evenly in a casserole dish.

Why a foil pan? Easy clean up of course 😉

If you’re feeling fancy go ahead and use a “real” casserole dish.

Another helpful hint (just look at me being extra full of tips and tricks today 😉 )…when you dice the tomatoes, place them on paper towels to soak up any extra liquid.

This will help prevent the tomatoes from making the dip, well….liquid-y.

Top the dip with some thinly shredded lettuce.

Then pile on the remaining bacon, cheese, green onions, and the diced tomatoes.

Refrigerate for at least an hour. Or you can make this up to 24 hours ahead of time and it will be ready to serve when you are.
