Bacon and Tomato Dip with Black Pepper Potato Chips

Pin It

Whether you are going to be hosting a backyard BBQ for Labor Day or kicking off the start to college football with a little tailgating this weekend (yeah!), I have got a recipe for you.

This dip utilizes the seemingly endless supply of late summer tomatoes while incorporating the wonder food that is bacon (sound familiar? See last post).  These two ingredients are mixed with a bevy of complimentary flavors that will have hands moving back to the bowl for more.  Sometimes the hands will even move involuntarily.  Trust me, I've seen it☺.

Bacon and Tomato Dip with Black Pepper Potato Chips
makes 4 cups

12 slices smoked bacon, diced, cooked and drained
2 1/2 pounds Roma tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and finely diced
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup sour cream (light or full fat)
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1/4 cup finely diced green onions
1/4 cup minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or to taste (optional)
Kosher salt to taste

Black pepper potato chips

In a large mixing bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients.  In the bowl of a food processor, purée half of the mixture.  Return the purée to the mixing bowl and stir to combine.  Season to taste with cayenne pepper if using and salt.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. (Dip will keep well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.  Stir well before serving.) Serve with black pepper potato chips.  Enjoy!

  1. Exactly what I was looking for to take to a neighbor's picnic: Easy, tasty, crowd-pleasing, and uses some of those tomatoes are crowding me out of my garden,/kitchen/home! (Not to mention BACON!)

  2. sounds delicious! my boyfriend is allergic to mayo so I'll sub greek yogurt, make it so he can it eat and increase the protein and drop the fat in one fell swoop!

    1. How did using the greek yogurt come out? I'm also trying to decide what the best veggies would be to serve this with (instead of potato chips)...
