- Serves: 8 persons
- 6slices bacon (diced)
- ½pound ground beef
- 1large onion (diced)
- 8ounces cream cheese (softened)
- ¾cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
- ¾cup Mexican blend cheese (shredded)
- 1tablespoon ketchup
- 2teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1teaspoon paprika
- 1teaspoon garlic powder
- 1teaspoon salt
- 1teaspoon ground black pepper
- ¼cup beef broth (or water)
- Garnish: chopped scallions, ketchup, pickles
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Preheat the oven to 350 F. Add the diced bacon to a large sauté pan or saucepan. Heat on medium-high heat until the bacon has browned, crisped, and the fat has been rendered. Drain the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate. Leave the bacon grease in the pan.
Step 3Add the ground beef to the pan and continue heating on medium-high heat, breaking up the meat as it cooks until it is browned. Drain off some of the fat if needed.
Step 4Add chopped onion to the ground beef and continue cooking until the onions are slightly softened.
Step 5Add the cream cheese and half of the cheddar cheese and half of the Mexican blend cheese to the ground beef mixture. Mix until well blended. Add in the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Fold in the bacon and add more salt and pepper to taste. Mix in the beef broth or water.
Step 6Pour the dip into a small casserole dish or, if the pan you're using is oven-safe, leave the mixture in the pan. Then top with the rest of the cheese.
Step 7Bake in the preheated oven until the dip is bubbly and the cheese has melted and is slightly browned, about 20 minutes. If you don’t want a crispy cheese on top, then add the cheese at the end and allow it to melt.
Step 8Top with scallions and serve with thick potato chips. If you are feeling adventurous, drizzle on a little more ketchup or some chopped pickles.
