Recipe: Bacon Cream Cheese Dip

Karate Kid and I made Pioneer Woman's Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Thingies--definitely a keeper! We had about 6 slices of left over bacon and another package of cream cheese. I was feeling inspired. This what we came up with and it was a huge hit at our New Year's Day Party:

Bacon Cream Cheese Dip

six slices bacon diced and sauteed until good and crispy
1/4 red onion, diced fine and sauteed in 1 tablespoon of bacon drippings
1 package cream cheese softened
1 cup sour cream
Juice from one lemon
Salt and Pepper to taste

Stir together until homogenous, chill, and serve with chips, crackers, or crudite.

Mmmmmmm...bacony. Were the jalapeno thingies too spicy?

We like it spicy around here, but I don't think these were too spicy. The seeds and membrane are removed and that is what give jalapenos most of their kick, plus they are roasted in the oven which adds to their more mild flavor. Wingnut, Karate Kid, and I loved them, none of the rest of ours would try them.

I haven't tried one of her recipes that I haven't liked yet. I don't know if she comes up with them, but they sure are good.

I can attest to the sheer baconosity of both the dip and the jalapeno things
