Can Ranch and Cream Cheese Dip Be Made Ahead?

This dip is easy to make a day, hours or even minutes before you will need it. If you are making a day ahead, be sure to keep in an air tight container in the refrigerator and add extra bacon and green beans as garnish before serving.

The flavors in this dip become even more intense the longer it has to sit before serving, so it is perfectly fine to make the day before.

Tips for Making Cream Cheese Dip

  • use cream cheese that is room temperature, the cream cheese will be soft and super easy to mix with the other ingredients.
  • allow the sour cream to come to room temperature as well to help smoothly mix
  • grate your own cheddar cheese, it really does have more flavor than the pre-shredded bagged cheese

How to Store Ranch Dip

When stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator, this dip will be good for up to 4 days.
