Hot Tomato, Bacon & Blue Cheese Dip


8 ounces Cream Cheese, cut into cubes

8 ounces Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded (divided)

1/4 cup Blue Cheese, crumbled (plus extra for topping)

1/4 teaspoon Salt

1/2 teaspoon Garlic, minced

3 slices Thick Cut Bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 tablespoon Fresh Parsley, chopped

3/4 cup Cherry Tomatoes, quartered

Way Better Snacks Unbeatable Blues Tortilla Chips


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place the cream cheese, 1/2 of the shredded cheese, blue cheese, salt, and garlic in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until well combined.

Add the bacon and parsley to the bowl and mix until just combined.

Add the cherry tomatoes to the mixture and gently fold them in using a rubber spatula. Spoon the mixture into a baking dish (miniature cast iron skillets work great, or simply an 8×8″ baking dish). Top the mixture with the remaining shredded cheese. Sprinkle a little bit of chopped parsley and blue cheese crumbles on top of the cheese.

Place on the top rack of the preheated oven and bake for 12-14 minutes, or until bubbling and slightly browned in spots.

Remove and serve immediately with your favorite Way Better Snacks Tortilla Chips!
