The Irresistible Combination

The Bourbon Peach Dip stands out with its sweet and salty flavor profile. Each bite offers a nutty crunch from the pecans, a creamy base from the cream cheese, and a rich, smoky taste from the bacon. This dip pairs wonderfully with buttery crackers or slices of toasted French baguette, making it a versatile choice for any gathering.

Ingredients Breakdown

  • Bacon: Adds a smoky, savory element. Cook and crumble it ahead of time, reserving some for the topping.
  • Onion: A small yellow onion, or about 1/2 cup chopped, brings a subtle sweetness and depth.
  • Bourbon: Provides a rich, caramel-like flavor. You can substitute any whiskey or omit it if preferred.
  • Peaches: Fresh peaches offer natural sweetness. Using about three peaches (around 2 cups chopped) gives the best flavor.
  • Pecans: Provide a crunchy texture and nutty flavor. Reserve some chopped pecans for the topping.
  • Cream Cheese: Ensure it’s at room temperature for easy spreading.
  • Chipotle Chile Powder: Adds a smoky heat. Make sure it’s made only with chipotle chiles, not a blend.
