Looking for a crowd-pleasing snack that will leave your taste buds tingling with delight? Look no further than our Cheesy Bacon Tomato Dip. With its mouthwatering combination of smoky bacon, sweet tomatoes, and creamy goodness, this dip is a surefire way to satisfy your cravings.

This easy-to-make dip is a versatile choice, whether you’re hosting a party, enjoying a casual get-together, or simply indulging in a night of self-care. It pairs perfectly with crispy chips, crunchy fresh veggies, or can be used as a delectable spread for baguettes or crackers. Its versatility allows you to explore various serving options, making it a go-to choice for any occasion.

To create the ultimate flavor explosion, we recommend using sweet cherry tomatoes for this dip. However, any ripe tomato will still contribute to the tantalizing taste. The key is to find the sweetest tomatoes you can lay your hands on for that burst of natural sweetness that complements the other ingredients. When it comes to the bacon, opt for a smoky variety that strikes the perfect balance between flavor and texture. Lean, chewy bacon works best, as it adds a delightful smokiness without overpowering the other elements of the dip.

Prepare to be enchanted by the harmonious fusion of flavors. The smoky, salty notes from the bacon dance in perfect harmony with the sweet tang of the tomatoes. Creamy cheese and sour cream provide a luscious backdrop, while a touch of cayenne pepper spices things up just enough to tantalize your taste buds.

For optimal texture and flavor distribution, we recommend finely chopping the bacon using a food processor. This creates a consistency resembling ground beef or pork and ensures that the bacon is evenly distributed throughout the dip. Fry it up to release its irresistible flavors, and be sure to drain it well before incorporating it into the dip.  (By the way, chopped bacon is also delightful when used in terrines).

Elevate your snacking experience with the Cheesy Bacon Tomato Dip. Its irresistible blend of flavors will have you coming back for more, making it a standout favorite among your family and friends. Whether you’re hosting a gathering or treating yourself to a solo indulgence, this dip is guaranteed to impress.

Cheesy Bacon Tomato Dip

Cheesy Bacon Tomato Dip is another dish where a food chopper or food processor is invaluable.  It’s important when making this dip to thoroughly chop the bacon into minced meat and then sauté it just like you would with ground beef or pork.  You can also use a strong blender- I actually use my Nutri-bullet although I have a separate blending container I use for meat and other savory ingredients.

Make sure to use the sweetest tomatoes you can find to really enjoy this dip to its fullest!

15 minutes 10 minutes 2 cups
PREP 15 minutes
COOKING 10 minutes
YIELD 2 cups


  • 1/2 lb bacon
  • 1/2 lb Cherry tomatoes
  • 3/8 cup cream cheese
  • 3/8 cup sour cream
  • 4 sliced scallions
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


  • Slice the cherry tomatoes in half.

  • Chop up the bacon in a food processor.

  • Fry the bacon over medium high heat for 5 minutes until cooked through.  Drain any grease.

  • Add the tomatoes and scallions.  Turn down heat to medium and sauté together, stirring often, for 10 minutes until the tomatoes are completely broken apart.

  • Stir in the salt and cayenne pepper and sauté for one more minute.  Remove from heat.
  • Combine the bacon mixture with the sour cream and cream cheese.

  • Whisk thoroughly to make sure there are no lumps of cream cheese remaining.

  • Serve warm with vegetable sticks, chips or crackers.  You can also refrigerate and serve cold.


  • If you like a spicier dip, then add a half cup of Franks Red Hot sauce (or any red cayenne pepper based hot sauce) to transform this dip into a red hot Buffalo dip that can be heated up and served with French bread, crackers, chips or fresh veggies.
  • If you add the bacon and tomato mixture to the cheese and sour cream while it’s still hot it will soften the cream cheese and the dip will need more time in the fridge to harden back up.  If you want to serve the dip cold, allow the bacon and tomatoes time to cool to room temperature before mixing in.
