I warned you yesterday on Facebook you would need your fat pants for today’s recipe and I wasn’t kidding. If you aren’t compelled by the end of this post to to block out a few hours of “you” time, find a movie to watch, throw on some stretchy pants, and make this dip, I’m not sure we should be friends anymore. Only kidding!
We can be friends even if you aren’t tempted by this because it means that you have the willpower of a thousand stallions and I could clearly benefit from your influence. You want to know how else you can help me? Keep reading…
I’m not afraid to admit that this dip is just down right ridiculous. We’re talkin’ an alfredo sauce base with cream cheese, provolone cheese, thick sliced roast beef, pepperoncinis and onion soup mix baked until melted perfection. BUT, we’re not done yet.
OH, no! Once it comes out of the oven it gets topped with fresh avocado, diced tomatoes, AND crispy bacon. Are you stretchy pants out yet?
