Simple Ingredients:

  • Mayo– Offers flavor and creaminess.
  • Sour cream– This gives it a nice tang.
  • Cooked Bacon- Do I even need to explain why we add bacon? 🙂 Crispy, salty, and delicious!
  • Fresh jalapeno- This adds a nice fresh jalapeno flavor and crunch.
  • Green onion- I only use one green onion for a subtle bite.
  • Sharp cheddar cheese– The sharp cheddar makes this dip extra rich.
  • Pickled jalapeno or pepperoncini juice from a jar– While this is optional it does add great flavor.
  • Seasonings– Ranch seasoning mix, salt, and pepper.

Use a store-bought rotisserie chicken for an even faster chicken salad dip.
