16 ounces sour cream
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded Cheddar cheese
1 jar (3 ounces) bacon bits
1 cup chopped green onions
1 envelope onion soup mix
Assorted fresh vegetables (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 400°F. In a mixing bowl, stir together sour cream and cream cheese. Fold in shredded cheese, bacon bits, green onions and onion soup mix.
2. Pour into a 2-quart baking dish. Cover and bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. To serve, place in center of platter and surround with crackers and assorted fresh vegetables (optional).

2 tsps onion powder
2 tsps garlic powder
2 tsps cumin
2 cans chopped green chilies
1 tbs butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk, or as needed
1 pound white American cheese, cubed
Place cheese, milk, and butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook until cheese has melted, stirring frequently. Stir in green chilies, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper to taste. Add more milk if dip is too thick. Heat through and serve immediately

6-8 slices of bacon, diced and cooked crispy
2 8-oz packages of cream cheese, soft
1 cup of mayonnaise
4-6 jalapeno's, chopped and deseeded. The seeds will make it fiery hot.
1 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup diced green onion
1 cup of crushed crackers ( I used Ritz)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 stick of butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine all of the ingredients into a medium bowl. Stir well.Transfer to an oven proof dish. The size of the dish depends on how thick the dip is. The thicker the dip the longer it may need to warm up. I used this stoneware dish that is round and measures 12 inches across. My dip is usually about an inch thick. Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle all over the top of the dip.
Bake the dip for 20-30 minutes or until bubbly

1 1/2 # sausage
1 # bacon
3 pkgs cream cheese
6 oz sour cream
8 oz shredded cheddar
12 jalapenos.
1# bacon
Slice up one pound of bacon into 1/4 inch slices. Fry bacon and sausage together over low heat. Place cream cheese in microwave safe large mixing bowl and soften. While the meat is cooking and the cheese is softening, remove stem, core, seeds, and membranes from peppers. After rinsing the peppers to ensure the seeds have been removed, chop the peppers and add to the softened cream cheese. When the meat is cooked drain thoroughly on paper towels. Cut up the other pound of bacon and fry it, and set aside to drain. Add the sausage bacon mixture, sour cream and 4 oz of cheddar to the cream cheese and jalapenos. Mix well and pour into 9x13" pan that has been greased.
Sprinkle remaining cheddar cheese and the drained bacon over the top. Bake in 375° oven 30-45 mins or until cheese on top starts to bubble. Serve with chips, crackers or as a side dish. More jalapenos may be added.

Makes about 1 1/2 cup:
3/4 cup smooth all-natural, pure peanut butter

2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp fish sauce
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 lime, juiced
sriracha or other hot chili sauce, to taste
1 small can (5.6 oz) coconut milk
Heat the coconut milk before adding it to the mix. Garnish with crushed peanuts, parsley, and a few drops of hot sauce.

8 oz. sour cream
8 oz. cream cheese
16 oz. cheddar cheese, grated (sharp or mild)
4 oz. chopped green chilies
Green onion (suit your own taste)
1 c. chopped ham
1/2 pound chopped bacon
1 round bread loaf, hollowed out
Mix first seven ingredients together and put into the hollowed out bread loaf. Bake at 350 degrees uncovered for one hour. Serve with leftover bread or chips...

Just a general trick, substituting cottage cheese for sour cream reduces that fat and adds a ton of protein to a meal. Just be sure to first blend the cottage cheese and no one will be able to tell the difference.

1 package (8 Oz. Package) Cream Cheese
1 can (10 Oz. Can) Rotel
1 can (10.75 Oz. Can) Cream Of Mushroom Soup
1 pound Ground Beef OR Sausage (or A Combination Of Both)
Brown ground beef or sausage (or both) in a pan over medium heat and set aside. Cut up the Velveeta and cream cheese into cubes and place into a crock pot.

2/3 cup whole milk
1/2 cup cold water
pinch of cumin (optional)

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
½ cup butter, slightly softened

Add in the powdered sugar, brown sugar, flour, and vanilla. Using the paddle attachment on your stand mixer or just a wooden spoon, mix in the oats. You may want to use more or less here. I really like the oats in it and a thicker dip so I added a lot. Remember that the dip will also firm up a bit in the fridge. Add the M&Ms and chocolate chips.  Store in the refrigerator until serving. Serve with pretzels, graham crackers, or apple slices. You can dip or spread this depending on how thick you made your dip.
