Sriracha Dip

I'm beginning to see a glimmer of hope the end of winter is near. Spring cannot get hear soon enough, I'm ready for some warmer weather! In an effort to speed things up, I bought my Spring scents from Yankee Candle last weekend in New Hampshire: Blueberry Cobbler, Lemon, and Clean Cotton. The down side of the blueberry one is I know have the incredible urge to bake some cinnamony-sugary blueberry muffins. Maybe the Clean Cotton will urge me to do the laundry? Eh, probably not.

I've really taken a liking to spicy foods. I fell in love with the Sriracha Burger I made in summer I had the thought to turn it into a dip. I love dips since for me they make a great dinner when Alex is working and I don't feel like putting together anything overly complicated for myself. I really liked this dip, the hint of bacon crisps really add something different. Add as much Sriracha as you'd like, although the amount of spice I could handled tapped out at 5 tablespoons.

 
 
Ingredients
-1 block cream cheese, softened
-3/4 pound ground beef
-5 tablespoons Sriracha sauce
-4 bacon strips
-1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
-4 slices Swiss cheese
 
 
1. Preheat oven to 400. Cook bacon until crispy. Dice into small pieces.
 
2. Cook beef and drain. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, beef, bacon pieces, mozzarella cheese, and Sriracha sauce. Mix well to combine. Pour into a 9x9 baking dish and top with the slices of Swiss cheese.
 
3. Bake 15 minutes. Broil an additional 7-8 minutes until Swiss cheese is browned and bubbly.
