Best Dip For Doritos Recipe - Great for Football Parties! (1)

Ok - I know what you are thinking - Doritos are fine all on their own. Who needs a dip for Doritos recipe? I used to think that way too! Then a new family moved on to our street with a son the same age as our oldest and we quickly became friends. Many LATE nights of hanging out while the kids played, playing cards together and drinking copious amounts of "adult beverages".

I don't even remember the first time that Karen introduced me to this dip. We seemed to live at each other's homes and one day she put out a bowl of Doritos and a bowl of this dip. After a few minutes, I asked if she had any chips for the know...Doritos DON'T NEED dip! She told me that this was a recipe given to her by a friend who called it the "Gay Divorcee Dip" and that I should really try it. I have Googled "Gay Divorcee Dip" and the only thing that comes up is my post from 2009 about this dip, so I am SURE that there is a fabulous story about how this dip got its name. Just wish I knew it!

Hennyway - if you are looking for a dip for Doritos recipe (or even if you didn't know that Doritos COULD be dipped in anything and still taste good), you HAVE to try this one. I have only tried it with "traditional" Doritos (nacho cheese) as well as Cool Ranch, as those are the only ones that I like. If you find that this dip tastes great with other flavors of Doritos, please let me know!

    What kind of bacon bits do you use? The regular crunchy "fake" bacon bits, or the real bacon bits?

    • Mindi Cherry

      I have used both and they have been fine! The original way the recipe was given to me was with the "fake" bacon bits. It just depends on what I have in the house.

    I was looking the picture of the dip over and it looks like there is something else besides the ingredients listed in it. Did you happen to add anything that would give it a t would give it a slight red coloring or any peppers (green bell or sweet red)to it If not, it must be some sort of shadow or reflection.

    • Mindi Cherry

      Hi Barbara!

      The ingredients are exactly as listed....but mixing in the bacon bits does tend to tint it a bit after it has sat for a few hours (and it could also be a reflection - this was taken when I was still really learning to use my camera for food photography 😉 )
