Habanero-Pepper Jack Bacon Dip

If you know only a few things about me, one should be that I love snacks and that I love to make them!  Especially dips!  If it comes to a pot luck and I'm able to pick my dish, it's going to be an appetizer and more than likely, it'll be a dip.  (Even more probably that it would be {this} bacon blue cheese dip)

* I received free samples of Nibblers.  All opinions and recipe are my own.

Crystal Farms has a new product out that you should check out.  These cute little packets of cheese are only a buck a piece, perfectly sized for snacks or lunch bags, and come in awesome flavors that tiny taste buds, and the adult-sized cravings will love!

After tasting the subtle spice to the Habanero variety, I knew this would be great with the bacon in my standard blue cheese dip.  When it comes to cheese and bacon, you can really never go wrong!  Don't be scared with the word "habanero."  It's a subtle heat that blends really well with the creaminess of the yogurt and the salt from the bacon. Serve it up with celery or your other favorite dipping vegetable (again, going for health, or relative health!)


Because the hubs and I are trying to watch the waistline before we pack on the winter weight, I used greek yogurt instead of sour cream, but the choice is purely yours.

Take 1 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt, and mix in 4 slices of crumbled bacon along with 2 chopped green onions and 2 - 1.5 oz packets of Crystal Farms Habanero Seasoned Pepper Jack Cheese Nibblers.  Stir until well combined and chill a few hours before serving.  You can eat this right away, but allowing the spice from the cheese and meld with the yogurt makes for a super tasty treat that is well worth the wait!
