If you choose to make the spicy bacon dip, here are a couple of hints. The Chipotle Sauce adds a smoky note to the recipe. If you prefer a bolder, spicier heat you can choose a different Tabasco or simply do half the Chipotle and half traditional Tabasco. It does change the flavor, though.
Also, make sure that the bacon is crispy and well-drained. The crispy bacon is important to provide a little bit of texture in the recipe. The size of the pieces depends on your personal preference.
Lastly, serving this dip on a crostini makes it a hearty appetizer. If you use chips, consider a thicker chip that will stand up to the creamy dip. No one wants to lose a chip in that dip.
If spicy bacon dip doesn’t tempt your taste buds, Tabasco has a variety of dip recipes for the big game menu. From a pizza dip to infused ranch chipotle dip, there are many recipes that will score at any big game gathering.
