  • 8-10 slices of thick cut bacon
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 4 jalapeños, diced
  • 1.5 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 1.5 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 chives, thinly sliced for garnishing
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 400° F. Place the bacon on a foiled baking sheet and bake on the middle rack for 15 minutes, flip and bake for 10 minutes or until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate, blot the grease, then dice the bacon on a cutting board and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, Greek yogurt, ricotta cheese, minced garlic, onion powder, paprika, 3/4 of the bacon, 3/4 of the jalapeño, and 2 cups of cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave for 15-20 sections. Then add the panko and parmesan cheese. Toss together with a fork until fully combined.
  • Transfer the dip to an oven safe baking dish or skillet and sprinkle with remaining bacon, jalapeños, and cheese and then top with parmesan panko mixture. Bake at 350° F for 15-20 mins, or until dip is golden and bubbly. Serve hot with tortilla chips.


  • Both cheeses can be substituted for a Mexican cheese blend.
  • If preparing ahead of time, place all ingredients in the skillet and wait to bake until ready to serve.
