Sour Cream & Onion Cheesy Bacon Chive Dip

It's basketball season. If you're into watching basketball (or just attending basketball game parties for the food that comes with it), here's a dip that you can only get in the winner's circle. And if you're not? Well, the great thing about this dip is that it goes well with beer...so basically you can bring it to any kind of game-watching party if you want. Or just any party. Or just your Friday night hangout sesh while you watch Netflix alone....you decide.
