1/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Bacon Cheese Dip
Submitted by: Sugie
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
3 ounces real bacon bits
1 cup sour cream
1 tomato, chopped
Combine cheeses, garlic, onions, bacon bits and sour cream in a baking dish and mix well. Bake at 350F for 45 minutes. Top with chopped tomato and serve with crackers and/or tortilla chips.
The Skinny: Use low fat sour cream. You might be able to get away with low fat cheeses as long as you don’t lose the “gooey” factor.
