I used "real" crumbled bacon which I highly recommend if your store carries it pre packaged, also added one bunch chopped green onions, and made the day before. Served with potato chips. I have never seen a dip inhaled like this. I really wished I had doubled the recipe. Will make every time from now on. Thanks for a keeper!

I don't know why this is in the top ten. I made it for a group of 15, and no one liked it!

This is great, the bacon and cheese really add an extra depth to the ranch dip. I did use real bacon rather than bacon bits, so I suspect that helped where some reviewers complained about there being too much.

I brought this dip for Thanksgiving at my sisters. It was a huge hit! Everyone loved it! They scraped the bowl clean. I didn't use the bacon bits, instead I fried 2 strips of bacon and crumbled it into the dip. I will definitely make this dip again! Thanks for sharing! It is now a family favorite! It was simple to make and delicious to eat. Served it with carrots, celery, red bell peppers and potato chips. Very yummy with the chips!

I took this to a party and everyone loved it. Great, simple recipe.

EXCELLENT! I made it for a cookout at our home and the family loved it. The only change I did was use a about 1/2 a can of the Bacon Bits. It was delicious! Great dip!

I made this for a party and I thought it was wonderful. I served cheddar pretzels for dipping and it was a great combination. I did cut back on the amount of bacon bits, as I thought the amount called for would be overpowering. I halved it and thought the dip was great. I'll make this again and again--it's so simple and easy.

This is a great tasting dip. I am not a huge ranch fan, but it really is a good dip. I made it for my son's 2nd birthday party this past weekend and I got several requests for the recipe. I did lay off on the bacon a bit and only used about 1.5 ounces. This is a keeper!
