You just RSVP'd for an upcoming party, and now you've got to decide what on earth you're going to bring. C'mon, you can't just bring a plate of brownies or store-bought appetizer. And then you start to think about it more and wonder, "Should I cancel and just not go? What can I find at Whole Foods to make it look homemade?" 

I know I've been in this position, and until the perfect dish is found, it can be stressful. Food is arguably the most important part of the party, right? To save you precious time and money, we've got the perfect addition to any get-together: a bacon, cheddar and sour cream party dip.

This is the dip that never fails to please party goers, whether you're young, old, gluten lover, gluten hater, or a social butterfly. Best of all: it's so simple that anyone can make it.
