  • 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ½ medium Yellow Onion , finely chopped (approximately ¾ cups chopped)
  • 1 pound lean Ground Beef (to keep the dip skinnier, use 99 % fat free beef)
  • 8 ounce can Diced Green Chilies (hot or mild to your preference), drained
  • 6 pieces thick-cut Hickory Smoked Bacon , cooked until done but not overly crisp (still pliable), with any large pieces of fat removed and discarded; chopped
  • 1 8- ounce block Cream Cheese (for less fat substitute Neufchatel)
  • ½ teaspoon ground Cumin
  • 1 cup plus ½-1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese , finely grated
  • ½ cup Pepper Jack cheese , grated
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 fresh 3-inch diameter Tomato , ripe and firm, diced (approximately ½ cup)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add onions and sauté until translucent.
  • Add the ground beef and sauté until cooked with no red. Drain any surplus fat or liquid and return to medium heat.
  • Add the green chilies, bacon, cream cheese, 1 cup cheddar, pepper jack, and cumin. Stir frequently until all ingredients are combined and the cheeses have melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Stir in fresh tomato to the mixture. Remove from heat and spoon into a heatproof serving container which will hold at least 4 cups.
  • Cover the dip with the extra ½-1 cup cheese and place into the preheated oven to melt the cheese. When cheese is melted, remove and serve with tortilla chips for dipping.
