Select ingredients:


  1. Sauté the bacon in a large skillet set over medium heat until crispy. Transfer cooked bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside. Discard all but 1 tablespoon of bacon grease from the pan. Add cumin, cayenne pepper, salsa and jalapeno peppers. Sauté for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add the Velveeta®, cream cheese and milk. Stir until melted.
  3. Sprinkle with reserved, cooked bacon and serve immediately with tortilla chips and fresh cut vegetables.

Recipe Tip: Leave out the cayenne pepper for a milder dip.
