  • Whisk


  • 10 oz. (285 gr) bacon cut into pieces
  • 3 tbsp. (50 gr) unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp. flour
  • 2 cups (500 ml) whole milk
  • 1½ cups (125 gr) Cheddar grated
  • 1½ cups (125 gr) Monterey Jack grated


  • ½ onion chopped
  • 1 tomato chopped
  • 3 tbsp. coriander chopped
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pita bread/Baguette in slices or chunks


  • In a non-stick pan add the bacon and cook for about 5 minutes on medium-high heat. Set aside.
  • To make the topping/salad, add all the ingredients to a bowl. Stir to mix and set aside.
  • In a saucepan over low heat add the butter and let it melt. When melted add immediately the flour and whisk everything until smooth. Add the whole milk and keep whisking until there are no lumps left. Add the cheese blend gradually and keep whisking until you get a nice thick cream. Add the bacon to the sauce and mix to combine.
  • Pour the dip into a serving bowl and spoon a bit of the topping on top. Serve with any type of bread.
