An easy five-minute dip for festive entertaining with cream cheese, cheddar, bacon, peppers and chives.


  • 1 medium bell pepper (I prefer red), diced
  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1 packet dry Italian Dressing mix
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 5 strips bacon, cooked until crispy and crumbled
  • 3 Tbs fresh chives, minced


  1. Combine the bell pepper, cream cheese, sour cream, and dressing mix in a medium bowl and mix with an electric hand mixer or by hand until the cream cheese and sour cream are thoroughly combined and creamed.
  2. Next, add in the cheddar, bacon and 2 Tbs of the chives and mix until just incorporated.
  3. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with remaining chives for garnish.
  4. Serve with crackers or chips.
