Charleston Cheese Dip
We hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend. Ours was relatively low key which was much welcomed after a stressful few days. While helping our mom recover from recent surgery, we tried some new recipes! One was good, and the other not too good ... but you #winsomeyoulosesome, right? We were looking for an appetizer and came across Trisha Yearwood's Charleston Cheese Dip. If you haven't tried any of Trisha's recipes, you must! Her dip was gobbled up by everyone. We had most of ingredients on hand and clean up was quick and easy. This is an appetizer we will definitely add into rotation for parties, family gatherings and holidays. We added a generous amount of cayenne pepper and served ours with tortilla chips. Enjoy!

1/2 cup mayonnaise
One 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
2 green onions, finely chopped
1 dash cayenne pepper
8 butter crackers, crushed, such as Ritz
Corn chips, crackers or bagel chips, for serving
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, mix the mayonnaise, cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, green onions and cayenne pepper. Transfer the mixture to a shallow baking dish, such as a 9-inch pie dish.
Top the mixture with the cracker crumbs and bake until heated through, about 15 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and top with the bacon. Serve immediately with corn chips, crackers or bagel chips.
