White Trash Dip. So Wrong, Yet So Right.

recipe for white trash dip

It’s true. White trash dip is a dumb name for a dip. I tried to find the source of its naming, but all I found were other blog posts that talked about how dumb of a name this is. So, I guess it’s settled. White trash dip is dumb…or is it?

If done right, white trash dip can be a super tasty bean dip. Even babies like it.  (They call her the “Little Dipper.”)

White Trash Dip Recipe
  • 1 package bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 15 oz can of chili beans
  • 2, 8 oz packages of reduced fat cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped (de-seed if you don't like too much spice)
  • salt
  • red pepper flakes, optional
  1. Cook up your bacon. Let cool and then crumble.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 F
  3. Mix all ingredients together except for salt
  4. Taste. Does it need more salt or more heat? Mine did, so I seasoned liberally.
