Spicy BLT Dip

Do you love bacon? How about BLT sandwiches? And do you enjoy hot & spicy foods? If you answered "yes" to these questions, then this zesty party dip is for you! If you want to cut some of the fat in this recipe, you can substitute reduced-fat sour cream and reduced-fat mayo for the real stuff. You can even use fat-free if you prefer, but the flavor might not be as satisfying. But don't even think of using fake bacon bits instead of real bacon (sorry, vegetarians)!

3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
10 to 12 strips of bacon, crisply cooked, drained & crumbled
Salt to taste (optional)
2 Tbs Just My Taste Jalapeno Dip
2 or 3 ripe tomatoes, diced
2 cups (approx.) shredded lettuce
Pita chips, crackers, melba toast or tortilla chips

In a bowl, combine the sour cream, mayo and Just My Taste Jalapeno Dip. Taste to determine whether you want to add some salt, and season accordingly, keeping in mind that the bacon will add some saltiness to the finished dip. Spread the mixture evenly on the bottom of a serving dish, about a quarter-inch deep or so. Sprinkle the crumbled bacon evenly over the mixture, then add the tomatoes in an even layer over the bacon. Top with a layer of shredded lettuce, then serve with the chips or crackers etc. for dipping.

Zestfully yours,
