Step 1

Place a lightly greased wire rack in an aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.

Preheat oven to 425°F. Sprinkle potato wedges with salt. Wrap each with 1 bacon slice. Arrange potato wedges in a single layer in prepared pan. Sprinkle with pepper.

Bake at 425°F for 40 to 45 minutes or until bacon is crisp and browned.

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.

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.

Stir diced tomato and cilantro into queso blanco mixture. Serve dip with potato wedges.

Note: We tested with Velveeta Queso Blanco for prepared cheese product.
