We love potlucks here in Minnesota, and besides bringing a salad, I always LOVE bringing dips! Especially dips with cheese and bacon! This amazing dip is incredibly rich – and just perfect when scooped up with your favorite gluten-free chips or crackers. It will easily serve 4 (or more) and is super quick to throw together! Best of all – the kids will love it, and everyone will ask for the recipe at parties!
