Let’s get started!
HOW TO MAKE MILLION DOLLAR DIP
The ingredients for this cream cheese dip all pack major amounts of flavor…
Softened Cream Cheese: You can use full fat cream cheese or you can use reduced fat cream cheese to reduce the calories a bit.
Sharp Cheddar Cheese: Brings a nice bite to this recipe. Freshly shredded sharp cheddar is preferred.
Smoked Gouda Cheese: This is my favorite cheese and it gives this million dollar dip so much flavor!
Slivered almonds: Give this dip some crunch. You can toast them prior to mixing them in for even more flavor.
Sliced Green Onions: I like to use the white and green parts to make this dip even more colorful.
Mayonnaise: Helps bring the dip together and makes it more creamy. A lighter mayonnaise would work just as well and would help cut some calories.
Smoked Paprika: My favorite spice! There really is no comparison between smoked paprika and sweet paprika. They are totally different and the smoked version gives this dip a punch of smoky flavor.
Cayenne Pepper: Adds a little spice but not too much. Feel free to leave this out if you want to keep the dip mild. You can also add more…your call!
Combine all your ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix well!
Spoon the million dollar dip into a serving bowl and top with the reserved bacon and green onion for some added color.
