Let's Get Cheesy...Day 7 of #10DaysofTailgate....Dunkin Duck

Dips are always a big hit at any party but especially a tailgate party where people don't want to wander too far.  I get tired of serving up the same old salsa, guacamole, onion dip, nacho cheese dip, etc and went on the hunt for something new.  I came across this recipe by Deliciously Sprinkled that was exactly what I was looking for and as a bonus I was able to use some more of the Duck Bacon provided by Maple Leaf Farms, one of the sponsors of #10DaysofTailgate.

Speaking of sponsors, they have generously provided prize packages for our readers to win.  You can enter the raffle here.

Dunkin Duck, Cheesy Bacon Ranch Dip
adapted from Deliciously Sprinkled

1 (8oz) pkg, cream cheese, softened
3 T. creamy ranch dressing
1 c. Colby Jack shredded cheese
1/4 c. Dark Beer
3 strips Duck Bacon, diced and cooked (you can use regular or turkey bacon as well)

In large bowl of stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, mix cream cheese and ranch dressing until smooth and creamy.  Mix in the beer. Add the Cheese and Bacon, reserving some for garnish if desired.  Blend until combined.  Refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour before serving. Print Recipe
