Here's what you need:
2 Tbl dried minced onions
1-1/4 tsp. granulated garlic
1/4 tsp. salt
1-1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 rounded tsp. cayenne pepper
1 Tbl. bacon bits
1/2 tsp. cumin
1-1/4 tsp. cheddar cheese powder (I buy this in the bulk foods isle)
1 cup mayonnaise (Best Foods or Hellmann's; NO sandwich spreads allowed)
1 cup sour cream (regular or light is fine. I always use Daisy light sour cream)
Measure out all the spices into a bowl. Mix well and set aside.
Measure mayonnaise and sour cream into a medium bowl and add the spice mixture. Stir until well combined.
Chill at least two hours before serving. Serve with chips or veggies!
This recipe makes two cups of dip. I usually make the spice mix and use only 1/2 cup mayo and 1/2 cup sour cream with half the spice mix and save the other half for another time.
