Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a nice way to kick up queso. Big chunks of bacon make this dip a touch smoky and super yummy. The cream cheese gives the dip a rich flavor and makes it extra creamy. The 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.
