There are many layered dip recipes out there - I have a couple of excellent ones in my collection, too. But this is a tasty new version that I think you'll enjoy! :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl.
  2. Spread the mixture onto a serving plate.
  3. Mix together the minced lettuce with the water chestnuts (if using).
  4. Top the cream cheese mixture with remaining ingredients, in order: lettuce/water chestnut, the cheeses, cooked and crumbled bacon, chopped tomatoes, and green onions.
  5. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
  6. Serve with bread rounds or pita chips for dipping.
  7. Note: you can also mix the water chestnuts into the cream cheese mixture instead of into the lettuce, if you prefer.

This is so good! I have made this twice now and both sets of people liked it. Most recently took it to a tailgate party. I made the dip section the evening before and then assembled it the next day. I used fat free cream cheese, light mayonnaise, and plain yogurt but used real bacon. Our tailgate party included this recipe plus Jambalaya, beer bread, and a raspberry dessert. Thanks Julesong for posting a winner!
