Try this Sour Cream Bacon Cheese and Chives Spread for your next party. It’s a tasty appetizer served with your favorite crackers. It only takes minutes to prepare and it’s sure to be a hit.
It’s time for this month’s Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. Each month, we’re challenged to make one of our pins that we’ve saved. It’s always a fun challenge to put our own spin on recipes, crafts, or diy projects that we’ve been meaning to make for a while. We encourage you to do the same! This month, my pinspiration was from The Recipe Critic.
I loved almost everything about the recipe, except for the mayonnaise. I like a little mayo in dishes, but this called for one and a half cups. That’s more mayonnaise than I wanted. I decided to substitute the mayo with sour cream. I think it makes it more like a spread instead of a dip as the pin calls it. I combined all of the ingredients except for the sour cream in a large mixing bowl to combine.
Once I had the cheese, almond slivers, chives, and bacon bits combined, I added in the sour cream.
Stir until the sour cream is incorporated into the rest of the ingredients. Place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Chill for at least 2 hours. It can be made ahead and kept refrigerated, it will last for several days.
When ready to serve, sprinkle more cheddar cheese on top to garnish.

This is definitely a recipe that I’ll continue making. I’m sure the inspiration recipe is tasty, too, but everyone at my house prefers sour cream over mayo.
