Cheesy Bacon Tomato Dip is every bit as delicious as it sounds. Easy to make, this dip can be served with chips, fresh veggies, or as a spread for baguettes or crackers.
When guests visit and you are looking for the perfect snack to put out, why not try this amazing spread. The more the elements of the dish contrast, the better the taste. I like to use sweet cherry tomatoes for this dip, but any sweet, ripe tomato will taste good. Find the sweetest tomatoes you can for the best tasting dip. The bacon should be smoky and not too fatty- the smokier and chewier the bacon, the better. The smoky, salty bacon along with the sweet tomato and the creamy cheese and sour cream and a touch of cayenne pepper combine to create one of the most delicious dips you will ever try.
Make sure to chop up the bacon on a food processor to give it the consistency of ground beef or pork, and then fry it up to release the flavors and rend out the fat. Drain it before mixing it into the dip.
You can serve it warm or cold- but if serving cold then be sure to let the dip cool completely in the refrigerator to stiffen it up before serving.
