Directions

  1. Place a lightly greased wire rack in aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°. Sprinkle potato wedges with salt. Wrap each with 1 bacon slice. Arrange potato wedges in a single layer in prepared pan. Sprinkle with pepper.
  3. Bake at 425° for 40 to 45 minutes or until bacon is crisp and browned.
  4. Meanwhile, sauté onion in hot oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  5. Combine queso blanco, next 3 ingredients, and onion mixture in a large microwave-safe glass bowl. Microwave at HIGH 2 1/2 minutes; stir and microwave 2 1/2 more minutes or until cheese is melted and mixture is smooth, stirring at 1-minute intervals.
  6. Stir diced tomato and cilantro into queso blanco mixture. Serve dip with potato wedges.

The whole process will take approximately an hour and thirty minutes. But after you take a bite, you’ll definitely say – it’s worth the wait!
