      Bacon-Wrapped Potatoes
      2 red potatoes, each cut into 8 wedges
      1/2 tsp sea salt
      16 bacon slices
      1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
      1/2 cup red onion, diced
      1 tbs vegetable oil
      1 garlic clove, minced
      12-oz queso blanco, cubed
      8-oz block pepper Jack cheese, shredded
      1/2 cup whole milk
      1/2 cup light cream
      4-oz can green chiles, chopped
      1 plum tomato, seeded and diced
      1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
      Place a lightly greased wire rack on a jelly-roll pan.

      Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Sprinkle potato wedges with salt and wrap each wedge with 1 bacon slice. Place potatoes in pan and sprinkle with pepper.

      Bake potatoes in preheated oven until bacon is crisp, which should take around 45 minutes.
      While bacon-wrapped potatoes are cooking, take out a small nonstick skillet and saute onions in hot oil over medium high heat for 5 minutes. Add garlic, saute for an additional minute and remove from heat. Place queso blanco, pepper Jack cheese, whole milk, light cream, green chilies and onion mixture in a large microwaveable glass bowl and mix together.

      Microwave at high for 2 1/2 minutes. When done, stir mixture and microwave at high again until the cheese completely melts, which should take about 2 1/2 minutes. Stir mixture at 1-minute intervals to make sure dip has a smooth consistency.

      Stir diced tomatoes and cilantro into cheese dip and serve alongside bacon-wrapped potato wedges. Serve with your favorite style eggs or frittata for a weekend breakfast or a ‘special’ occasion breakfast. Serves 8.
      My personal favorite is with a veggie omelet and drizzle some of the cheese sauce over it;-D
