Bacon Ranch Corn Dip Recipe – The perfect Game Day Appetizer

I can’t believe we are already halfway through September and well into football season!!

My Hubby enjoys his football watching time and since football is always better with friends, he’s always inviting a few over to watch the game either at our house or sometimes at a local pub (depending on game time, lol.)  It doesn’t matter if it’s college or NFL, the guys all seem to get equally riled up over the games.  I occasionally enjoy watching the games too, if it’s a team I care about, but for the most part, I’m more interested in the snacks!

I love to serve different types of chips, dips, finger foods (these sausage balls, y’all) and even sliders and sandwich rings, but it seems like dips are always a favorite!

This Bacon Ranch Corn Dip recipe I’m sharing today is perfect for this time of year!  Corn is on sale right now and the weather is perfect for grilling.  You can have grilled corn with dinner the night before and just grill extra for this recipe!

And of course… anything with bacon always goes over well.

This corn dip is a great combination of the sweet corn, spicy jalapenos, and salty, savory bacon. Serve it with tortilla chips (or just with a spoon, lol) and it makes a wonderful game day appetizer.
