Charleston Cheese Dip



Charleston Cheese Dip, appetizers, cheese dips, dips for crackers

When it comes to dips I usually prefer cold dips, except when they’re filled with cheese like the one pictured above. I made this one the other night for a very light dinner when no one was very hungry, and we just wanted a few things to snack on. I adapted it slightly from Trisha Yearwood’s recipe on the Food Network iPhone app. It’s called Charleston Cheese Dip. Enjoy!

A delicious cheesy warm dip great with crackers or corn chips.


  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • One 8 ounce package of cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 cup grated sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup grated Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 2 to 3 green onions (finely choped)
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper
  • 8 gluten free crackers crushed (recipe calls for butter crackers such as Ritz)
  • 8 slices of bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • Corn chips (crackers or bagel chips, for serving)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together the mayo, softened cream cheese, grated Cheeses, green onions and cayenne pepper. Transfer mixture to a shallow dish such as a 9-inch pie pan. Top the mixture with the cracker crumbs and bake for 15 minutes or until heated through.
  3. Remove the pan from the oven and top with the crumbled bacon. Serve the dip immediately with the corn chips, crackers or bagel chips.
