Captain's Cheese Dip

December 15, 2010

Well, I'm not gonna lie. I have sucked it up with food posts. Not that I haven't cooked. I just haven't blogged new recipes.

But, and it is a big but! At Heart 2 Home last Monday my Heat Mom Debra made the most awesome dip on the face of the Earth. It took everything in me to be lady like and not scarf it down like a mad woman. So here it is, the healthy version of course...because I can't do it any other way. Plus I couldn't taste a difference by cutting out a good chunk of the fat. Oh and there is no picture because I couldn't control myself and the next thing I knew it was long gone. 

Captain's Cheese Dip

  • 1/4 cup fat free mayo
  • 1/4 cup fat free sour cream
  • cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ounces low fat cream cheese
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 10 Ritz crackers, crushed
  • 1/3 cup cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup pepper jelly

What I did:
Mix first four ingredients til creamy and place in a glass pie dish.Bake at 350 for 15 minute or until crusty on edge. Remove for oven and top with crumbled Ritz and bacon pour glaze over top. Serve with crackers, or whatever you like...eating it with a spoon would work too.

**if you want to make it the regular way use 1/2 mayo instead of the fat free mayo and sour cream and also use regular cream cheese. But it you want to go lower fat use turkey bacon, I just didn't have any on hand.
