CHEESY GREEN ONION AND BACON DIP











CHEESY GREEN ONION AND BACON DIP

This was a tasty dip that my husband and I finished in one sitting.  Technically, this dip should serve 4 people! We literally made a meal out of it.  First time I’ve seen my husband eat fresh peppers and enjoy them that much.  I also served this dip with pepperoni chips.  Read in the helpful hints how easy it is to make them.  

4 oz grated Monterey Jack, (125 g)
  OR Mozzarella cheese (1 cup; 250 mL)
4 oz grated Cheddar cheese (125 g)
1/2 cup heavy cream (125 ml)
2 tbsp sour cream (30 mL)
1 tbsp minced garlic, jarred (15 mL0
1/4 cup chopped green onions, OR (60 mL)
  canned pickled jalapenos, to taste
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
Salt, to taste

In a nonstick pot, melt cheeses and heavy cream together.  Remove from heat and stir in sour cream.  Then stir in green onions, OR jalapenos and keep a few bits for garnishing the top of the dip. Pour dip into serving dish. Sprinkle with reserved green onions, OR jalapenos and bacon bits.  Serve dip on a large plate with serving dish in center.  Surround the dish with sliced colorful peppers and pepperoni chips*.

Helpful Hints:  *Pepperoni Chips: Line a dinner plate with a paper towel.  Place pepperoni chips on the paper towel and cover with another.  Nuke 2 to 3 minutes depending on the power of your microwave oven.  If you are using green onions and you’d like a spicy dip, simply add a bit of your favorite hot sauce.
