At BarBacon, my version of the classic vegetarian-friendly dip contains lots of bacon and is served with house-made chicharrónes, but you can serve yours with chips, toasted bread, crackers, or crudité.


  • 4 cups (960 ml) heavy cream
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped


In a medium saucepan, combine the cream and garlic. Bring to a boil over high heat, lower the heat to medium, and simmer until thickened and reduced by half, about 10 minutes.

While the cream is reducing, melt the butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until the fat begins to render. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towels.<
