Step 1

In a food processor, pulse sun dried tomatoes and pesto until tomatoes are finely chopped. Remove from food processor and place in a large bowl. Add bacon. Place remaining ingredients in food processor and process for 45-60 seconds, scraping down sides of bowl every 15 seconds, until smooth. Spoon into bowl with tomato mixture. Stir until combined. Place in a small shallow serving bowl. Cover and chill for 1-2 hours. Serve with crackers or fresh vegetables for dipping. Makes about 2 cups.

A food processor makes the prep time for this delicious dip minimal. If the sun dried tomatoes are in oil, drain well.
