    How to make Bacon Ranch Dip

    It could not be simpler to make! Start by combining the dry ranch dressing mix, sour cream and Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl. Transfer that mixture to a serving dish, cover and let it refrigerate for 2-3 hours.

    Right before you are ready to serve it, garnish the top with the crumbled bacon, green onions and parsley. You could even put some shredded cheddar on top if you’d like.

    My favorite way to serve this bacon ranch dip recipe is with kettle cooked chips. They are crispier, which means they won’t break in the dip bowl as easily. But if you don’t have any on hand, here are a few more options:

    • pretzels
    • crackers
    • vegetables (like carrots, celery or even broccoli and cauliflower )
    • pita bread
    • plantain chips
