Bacon and Cheddar Dip

This is a fabulous and easy way to spice up plain ranch dip. It's great with veggies like carrots and celery as well as with chips.

1 pt sour cream (I use reduced fat)
1 oz. packet Hidden Valley Original Ranch Party Dip
6-8 slices bacon (I use turkey bacon when I can get away with it :)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cook bacon till crisp. Cool and crumble into small pieces. Mix sour cream and ranch dip mix. Stir in bacon pieces and cheese. Mix together and serve with veggies or chips.

TIP OF THE DAY: When in a time crunch, this recipe (along with many others that call for crumbled bacon) works great with bacon bits or precooked bacon in place of bacon.
