  • 1 can mexican Rotel with part of the juice

  2. Mix in cheese and bacon by hand.
  3. Spread in dish to serve, and garnish with a few extra bacon pieces, cheese and scallions if desired.
  4. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers or our favorite Frito Scoop corn chips (processed I know...but it's our favorite way to eat this dip & we only make it a couple times a year!)
  5. Refrigerate, and will keep all week...but probably won't last that long.
Notes
*I buy hormone-free nitrate and nitrite-free bacon. Can mix all by hand instead of using a mixer.
