Holiday fopa #1 totally forgot the bacon for the dip. Duh! The recipe called for bacon bits and I thought it would be better with real bacon cooked and crumbled. And I'm sure it would have been but in the hustle and bustle it slipped my mind. The dip was still delish but who can resist ranch and sharp cheddar cheese. It went perfect with the homemade cheddar crisp crackers.
1 container (16 oz) sour cream
1 package (1 oz) ranch salad dressing mix
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup bacon bits
Mix together sour cream and dressing mix; add cheese and bacon bits. Stir well; chill for one hour before serving.
