How to make the 5 Minute Million Dollar Dip?

Combine the ingredients.
Chill the dish for at least 2 hours.
Serve it with your favorite crackers, chips, and veggies.
How long can I leave out a dip for?
After 2 hours in the fridge, the dip should just reach the perfect temperature. Chilling it beforehand also gives you a little bit more time before it reaches room temperature. In most situations, the dip will be long gone way before it reaches room temperature.
However, if there’s still some left, it’s recommended to pop it back in the fridge for 30 minutes after 2-3 hours or so. The reason for that is that this dip contains perishable ingredients like bacon, onion, and cheese. These ingredients are not good for consumption after being in the sun all day. Be mindful of the temperature of the dip and don’t eat food that’s gone bad!
What can I serve with my million dollar dip?
The beauty of dips is that you can go as crazy as you’d like and serve them with almost anything. Generally speaking, you should aim for something crunchy to complement your creamy dip. Opt for veggies like celery, cucumbers, and carrots. Throw in some tortilla chips, crackers, pretzels, and wheat thins. There are no rules, so if you find something that goes well with your dip, add it to the platter!
Can I make this dip one day before the party?
Of course! If you don’t want to rush on the day, you can start preparing one day in advance. To preserve the flavor and appearance of the dip, all you have to do is place it in a dish and cover it with a lid. Some people even say that the dip starts to taste better after spending a night in the fridge.
