Blue Ribbon Recipe

A nice way to kick up queso. This is a wonderful cheese dip that's brought to a whole new level of goodness with a few special ingredients. Big chunks of bacon make this dip super yummy and a touch smoky. The cream cheese gives the dip a rich flavor and makes it super creamy. Tomatoes with chilies add a little kick. If you like things spicy, use the hotter ones. This cheese dip is great for a party, game day, or just when you want an easy appetizer. We guarantee even the pickiest of eaters will love this.
