Cheese Dip Loaded with Cheddar, Bacon & Ranch

Stop what you are doing and add this Crack Chicken Queso to your Super Bowl menu. O-M-YUM! This dip is so addictive! Cheesy queso dip loaded with chicken, cheddar, bacon, and ranch. I could make a meal out of this yummy dip. In fact, I did eat this as my lunch the day I made it for the blog. I just couldn’t stop eating it!

What is Crack Dip? Crack Dip is a combination of cheddar, bacon, and ranch. I made the original dip WAY back in 2007 for a Titans football game. We pulled it out at the tailgate and everybody went nuts over it. We couldn’t stop eating it and jokingly said this stuff is like crack. The name stuck. So if a recipe has crack in the name, it means that it has cheddar, bacon, and ranch in it.

  • Feel free to substitute turkey bacon for the pork bacon.
  • Can you Freeze Crack Chicken Queso? Since this dip has Velveeta in it, it is not recommended to freeze the dip. Freezing Velveeta causes changes in quality and texture.
  • Is Crack Chicken Queso gluten-free? Velveeta is considered to be gluten-free, so this dip is gluten-free.

Cheese Dip is Great for Parties and Tailgating

This dip is CRAZY good! I never have any leftovers when I make this for parties or a tailgate. Everyone raves about it! We serve the dip with tortilla chips and Fritos. It is also great with celery sticks or bell pepper slices. If you do have any leftovers, it is great on top of a baked potato or over some enchiladas! YUM!
