Easy BLT Dip

This Easy BLT Dip recipe takes just 15 minutes to prepare. It has all the great flavors of a BLT sandwich, bacon, lettuce and tomato, but in a dip form that you can enjoy with just about anything!

It’s creamy and cheesy but also salty, smoky, and bursting with freshness too! It is a delicious dip, perfect for all ages, and is great for serving at any event.

Creamy BLT Dip is great served with tortilla chips, crackers, tortilla bowls, pita chips, or even on top of a sliced baguette. It’s great for snacking on movie nights but it’s also great as part of a barbecue table spread. With a fresh salad on top, there are so many ways to make it your own!

Try my Garlic Parmesan Fries if you enjoy cheesy and flavorful finger food, or these Crack Chicken Sliders that have a similar creamy ranch sauce with bacon!

Ingredients for BLT Dip all in small white bowls.

Ingredients Needed

  • Cream cheese – I recommend full fat, low fat will make this dip extra soft.
  • Mayonnaise – I prefer Duke’s brand
  • Sour cream – You can use all sour cream if you prefer
  • Ranch seasoning – I use regular ranch seasoning, but spicy or fiesta is also a good option
  • Bacon – I prefer thick cut, cooked until crispy
  • Cheddar cheese – or use your favorite
  • Lettuce – any type shredded will do
  • Diced Tomatoes – Ripe and plump
  • Green onions – optional
  • Chips or Crackers for dipping

How to make BLT Dip

FIRST: In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream and ranch seasoning together.

SECOND: Once the creamy ranch mixture is combined, stir in half the bacon and cheese and smooth into a serving bowl or dish.

THIRD: Sprinkle the remaining cheese, crumble bacon, tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and green onions on top of the creamy ranch mixture.

FOURTH: Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Serve with crackers or chips.

What kind of crackers go with BLT Dip?

You can use any of your favorite crackers or chips with this dip but I love:

  • Ritz crackers
  • Rye crackers
  • Tortilla chips
  • Doritos

Can you make BLT Dip the day before?

This BLT Dip recipe is great for making ahead, as it lasts for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. While it is best served after being refrigerated for an hour, it can also be served immediately if necessary.

Storage

Store in an airtight container, or tightly covered in plastic wrap, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Tapas Tips & Tricks

  • This can be served immediately but is best refrigerated for a few hours first. This will help the dip set slightly.
  • You can add diced onion, avocado or even diced jalapeños into the creamy mixture or use a garnish on top if you like.
  • Bake this BLT Dip in an ovenproof dish at 350°F for 20 minutes and allow to cool slightly before serving. If baking this dip, do so after the second step of this recipe.
