Bacon and Sriracha Chip Dip Recipe Summary

This recipe is about as simple as it gets. Combine all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix well. The end. That really is it. The only part that could take a little time is bacon bits if you are cooking your own, but who doesn’t like the smell of cooking bacon in their house? Also, you know… you could just go to the store and buy some bacon bits. Just serve this chip dip with your favorite potato chip and there you go.

We also add some sriracha to this dip. We love sriracha in our house and I think it is the most-used condiment in our house. It is used on everything from eggs to stir fry to chip dip in our house. We love our sriracha, so I was pretty pleased to be able to work it into this Bacon and Sriracha Chip Dip recipe.

Making Bacon Bits vs Store-Bought

Our grocery store has a pretty good selection of pre-made bacon bits. Choose one of those or if you are adventurous, make your own bacon bits. It isn’t hard. If you have a preferred method for cooking bacon, just do that and then finely chop the bacon. I like to cook mine in the oven. To do that, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lay bacon flat onto a cookie sheet and cook for about 17 minutes on the middle rack. 

All ovens are slightly different, so I would consider checking your bacon at 15 minutes and just start visually checking every minute or so after that. My oven, for example, cooks a bit hotter on one side than the other. Even at 17 minutes, one side of my pan of bacon is crispier than the other.

After done, put the bacon on a paper-towel-lined plate to cool and drain oil. After about thirty minutes to an hour, you should be able to mince this bacon. There you have it… bacon bits.

One thing I really enjoy about making your own bacon bits is that you get to choose your flavor. For example, I use hickory-smoked bacon in this recipe and it really adds some great flavor to the dip. Really, any flavor would do and use what you like!

Allowing This Dip to Sit

I advertise this as a quick recipe and it is. Not only is it quick to make, but you can serve it immediately if in a pinch or don’t have the patience. I do think, however, this dip is best served if you allow it to sit in your fridge for a few hours and up to overnight. This gives a chance for all of the ingredients to marry and blend together. Specifically, all of that bacon goodness gets a bit more infused into the dip as time goes on.

Do You Like It Spicier?

If you want to add a bit more heat, consider a few additions. First, you could just add a bit more sriracha! This is the easiest solution and it will give a bit of an extra bang to the bowl! Another thing you could try if you wanted a bit more zing is adding a ¼ to ½ teaspoon of cayenne powder. Finally, you could try adding a few dabs of really spicy hot sauce in addition to the sriracha. Heck, we even made Carolina Reaper hot sauce recipe a while back if you really wanted to bring the heat!

But this Recipe Doesn’t Make Enough

Well, double the recipe, ya dringus! Seriously though, this is meant for four people, but you could easily double, triple, or whatever the recipe size to fit your serving needs. Having a huge party? Figure out how many people you expect and do the math on how much you need.

Bacon and Sriracha Chip Dip Recipe Tips

  • Make your own Bacon Bits for maximum flavor
  • If you want it spicier, add more sriracha, add some cayenne powder, or a dab of really hot sauce.
  • While this can be served immediately, for best results, allow dip to sit in the refrigerator for a few hours and up to overnight.

    This also sounds like it would be amazing with fries or sweet potato fries/tots.
