Sour Cream & Onion Cheesy Bacon Chive Dip

It’s basketball season. If you’re into watching basketball (or just attending basketball game parties for the food that comes with it), here’s a dip that you can only get in the winner’s circle. And if you’re not? Well, the great thing about this dip is that it goes well with beer…so basically you can bring it to any kind of game-watching party if you want. Or just any party. Or just your Friday night hangout sesh while you watch Netflix alone….you decide.

Sour Cream & Onion Cheesy Bacon Dip

As if the name of this dish doesn't give it away, this is a cheesy, decadent party in your mouth, inspired by my favorite type of potato chip. Add some bacon in there for some smokiness and serve with more Sour Cream & Onion chips — you're so welcome.
