BLT Dip – a simple cool and creamy dip loaded bacon, lettuce and tomatoes! The classic sandwich in dip form is a must make for any get together.

Dips are always a hit at any get together, and they are usually one of the first things to go. Especially when there is bacon involved! This dip is such a simple and easy recipe that you can make in just minutes.

I love a good BLT, and it can be turned into so many different things. Like a BLT Salad or even a BLT Pasta Salad are two of my favorites. And this dip is just another fun alternative.

BLT Dip

This Cold BLT Dip starts with a base of cream cheese and sour cream to get it nice and smooth. I like to use ranch dressing mix to give it more flavor, because honestly I am just not a fan of plain cream cheese. But if you want to leave out the ranch mix, lots of people still love it that way.

You can mix up the dip the day before, and then just add the toppings when you are ready to serve. So it is great for get togethers.

What You’ll Need

  • Cream Cheese
  • Sour
  • Cream
  • Ranch Dressing Mix
  • Bacon
  • Roma Tomatoes
  • Shredded Lettuce

You can use store bought ranch dressing mix. But I always have this Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix on hand, so it is what I use.

How To Make BLT Dip

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for the FULL PRINTABLE recipe card.

  1. The first thing you need to do is brown and crisp up your bacon. I like to make Air Fryer Bacon and then just chopped it into pieces. You have to do it in batches, but it works great. You can use the oven or the stovetop…whatever your favorite method is.
  2. Mix together sour cream and cream cheese until it is nice and smooth.
  3. Add in the ranch dressing mix and stir well to combine.
  4. To the cream cheese mixture you will want to stir in about half of the chopped tomatoes and half of the bacon and mix until evenly combined.
  5. Spread this mixture in a pie plate or some kind of serving dish. Top with chopped lettuce and the remaining bacon and tomatoes.
  6. Serve with your favorite dippers.

Recipe Variations

  • If you don’t like sour cream you can use Greek yogurt or even mayo or a combination of all 3. You need 1 cup total, that could be 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup mayo, it could be all of either one, or whatever combination you like.
  • I like to use roma tomatoes for this because they aren’t super juicy and have a ton of seeds. You don’t want a ton of juice in your dip or it will just be soggy and not very good. Cherry or Grape tomatoes would be a great swap, or if you could squeeze out some of the liquid if you have a beefsteak type of tomato to use up.
  • Want to keep it lighter? You can use turkey bacon and low fat sour cream and cream cheese to cut down on some of the calories and fat. I would not use fat free of either though, they just don’t blend as well.
  • Lots of people love cheese with a BLT, so go for it and add cheese! If I do this I add about 3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese over the top before I top it with lettuce.

Best Dippers for BLT Dip

This is where you can get really creative! If you want bread like the traditional sandwich you can use crostini or even just toasted bread triangles and use it more like a spread than a dip. Otherwise here are a few of my favorites.

  • Pretzel Thins
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Potato Chips
  • Crackers
  • Veggies – bell peppers, carrots, celery
