This creamy bacon ranch dip takes just 5 minutes to make and is loaded with flavor. It’s the perfect way to help fuel your summer adventures!
I have to say, this has been one great summer in my household! The kids have done a variety of camps, dance and gymnastics lessons, plenty of pool time, long bike rides and we’ve taken two mini vacations. It doesn’t get much better than that! Throughout our summer adventures one thing has remained constant – the need to stay fueled. I always have plenty of quick and easy food and drink options on hand for snacking and on-the-go meal options. This bacon ranch dip is the perfect snack for any summer gathering, and it goes perfectly with a variety of chips and veggies!
When I’m looking to fuel our summer adventures, I head over to my local (San Francisco Bay Area) Safeway store. I always stock up on a variety of PepsiCo products like Quaker Cap’n Crunch and Life cereals, Gatorade G2 Lemon Lime, Lay’s Classic Potato Chips, Tostitos Scoops, Aquafina bottled water and Veggie Harvest Tomato Basil and Cheese Sunchips. You can find all of these products at your local Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, Safeway, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, United Supermarkets and Market Street.

Aquafina bottled water is a must-have for my family when we’re trying to beat the heat, and my family loves having different varieties of chips for an easy snack option when we’re off exploring. I often whip up this quick and easy bacon ranch dip to serve with Lay’s Classic Potato Chips, Tostitos Scoops and Veggie Harvest Tomato Basil and Cheese Sunchips. I love that it only has a handful of ingredients like sour cream, two types of cheese, ranch seasoning, bacon and green onions. This dip can be put together in just 5 minutes, perfect for when you’re short on time!
