Here is  my Cheese competition  entry.  This is a Trisha Yearwood recipe.  Charleston Cheese Dip has become a family favorite.  Anyone who has tried this dip loves it.  For me the best part of the dip is the fried bacon on top!  

For the Cheese Competition I placed 3rd.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
One 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
2 green onions, finely chopped
1 dash cayenne pepper
8 butter crackers
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
Corn chips,, crackers or bagels for dipping                                              

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, mix the mayonnaise, cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, green onions and cayenne pepper. Transfer the mixture to a shallow baking dish, such as a 9-inch pie pan. Top the mixture with the cracker crumbs and bake until heated through, about 15 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and top with the bacon. Serve immediately with corn chips, crackers or bagel chips.
