 0.25 cup whole milk

1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Then, microwave on high for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

5

Remove and break up with a fork.

6

Cover and return to the microwave for another 30 seconds.

Meanwhile, heat a medium skillet over medium heat.

Continue to cook 6-8 minutes or until golden and crispy.

Reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon fat and drain the remaining bacon on a paper towel lined plate.

Finally, serve with pita chips, crackers or chopped veggies.

Note: If you’d like to make this dip spicy, sub pepper jack cheese for the Monterey Jack cheese and finish with a few dashes of hot sauce.
