Well, this was pretty good, BUT... I followed the recipe, except for adding some red pepper flakes to zing it up a little bit. It smells great and looks great, but it is a little bit greasy!
Having made it, I would really suggest some (or all) the following changes: first off, don't get too complicated, so keep things easy - two 8oz-bricks of cream cheese, one pint of sour cream, one bag of shredded cheese, a package or two of real bacon bits (no fake ones) - don't get hung up on being quite so exact, and use the entire container. Second BIG change I would make - leave out the mayo! It made it greasy, esp when reheated. I would add one (or possibly two) EGG(s) to the mixture to give it a less slimy texture. (Apparently, that was the main purpose of the mayonnaise, using the eggs in it - can't see another reason to include it, because it didn't enhance the flavor, added only greasy qualities). Now, that does not mean it isn't pretty tasty as is - only that it is too greasy. Hubby has already asked me to make it again with the egg, and using ground sausage. Be sure to drain and rinse the sausage off before adding it to the mix!) Overall worth trying, but had to dock a star for the greasy texture.
