This dip will be gone in minutes!  It’s the perfect party snack!


  • 2 (8 oz) blocks of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • about 8 buttery crackers, crushed (like Ritz!)
  • 8 slices of crispy bacon, chopped up
  • 1 (11 oz) jar of pepper jelly
  • chips and/or crackers for dipping


  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat together your cream cheese and shredded Cheddar.  Next, stir in your chopped green onions.  Spread this mixture across your pie plate.
  3. After that, top your dip with crushed crackers and the fully cooked chopped bacon. (If you’re making this ahead just stop here until you’re closer to serving.)
  4. Pop your dip in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  5. When you pull your dip out of the oven, spoon your pepper jelly over the top.  I like to pop it back in the oven for about 2 minutes after that.
  6. Serve immediately with chips or crackers.


This dip is easy to make ahead too!  Simply assemble everything but the pepper jelly and then keep it covered in the fridge until you’re ready to bake.  Our favorite pepper jelly is Trader Joe’s.  You can also use already cooked bacon instead of crisping it up yourself.  For an easy gluten-free swap, just change out your crackers to a buttery g-free variety.
