Rated 5 out of 5 by from Raves This recipe is so simple yet unbelievably flavorful. I made it for the first time to take to work for treat day. Everyone wanted the recipe! We liked it with wheat crackers and fresh veggies, but could also just eat it by the spoonful! Will definitely make again for family and workplace gatherings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 of my favorite things! Bacon, cheddar, and ranch all in one dip is perfection! Just love this dip, and you can make it cheesier or more "bacony" by adjusting the amounts to taste. My sister, who is not a dip lover normally, loves this. Great with veggies, and super with crunchy breadsticks or bagel chips. Fantastic!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good and Easy Ranch Dip is a classic party staple. Spice it up a little bit with this recipe. It's super easy and should please everyone. I think the bacon works better with chips as oppposed to veggies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious and Easy This is the easiest dip to make. It's always a hit at parties and family get togethers. I would recommend it to anyone on a time crunch that doesn't want to bring something store made. I eat it with scoop corn chips. Perfect flavor combination!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG GREAT DIP My husband and I just LOVE this dip! The bacon, ranch, and cheese is just a perfect combination. We dip our pretzels in this dip, but it is great for potato chips, crackers, and I bet it would be good on a baked potato!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from office favorite I tried this at an office birthday potluck the other day, it was delicious! They told me it is one of their favorites and I agree! Looked up the recipe so I could make it this weekend :) I am not usually a fan of 'ranch', but the dip was really good. I will be making this to bring to upcoming events. I like to serve it with Baked Tostitos Scoops. I lightened the dip recipe by using turkey bacon, light sour cream and reduced fat cheddar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy!! So quick, easy, & versatile! Love it on potato chips or scoops. But it's also delicious on steamed broccoli - much better than cheese sauce!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family favorite I first tasted this dip at a family party. I asked my wife what it was. She said "Anna made it". I thought she said "Animated". Ever since, we have called this "Animated Dip". We love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Overall Dip This dip is so delicious, I get asked to bring it every time we have a scrapbook crop. I know of a person who will eat the leftovers with a spoon. We love it with crackers, especially hearty ones.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Chips of steel anyone? Disappointing dip. The morning after I made this dip it was very stiff and the chips simply couldn't handle the stiffness. I let it sit a couple hours to hopefully soften some, but no luck. Veggies might work, but chips don't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from P E R F E C T ! ! ! ! This is what you get when you put the two best tastes together; BACON + RANCH. It is Super EASY and Super FAST. You can add more cheese and different flavors of cheese to switch it up. A fun recipe to experiment with as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and easy This is always an easy dip to please everyone. It is cheap to make but tastes expensive with chips or crackers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meh While I love cold ranch, I do not love cold bacon. This dip is just a little off to me.
