Sweet Georgia Peach and Pecan Dip

Sweet Georgia Peach and Pecan Dip

Yield: One 9-Inch Pie Dish
total Time: About 25 To 30 Minutes
prep Time: About 5 Minutes
cook Time: About 20 To 25 Minutes

The peaches are mixed with onions, bacon, McCormick® Grill Mates® Brown Sugar Bourbon Marinade, cola, pecans, and that lovely sweet-and-savory mixture tops tangy cream cheese. There are so many textures in every bite. The dip is easy, ready in about 30 minutes, has so much flavor, and is sure to be a hit at any party.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 small sweet Vidalia onion, diced small (about 1 cup)
  • about 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 package McCormick® Grill Mates® Brown Sugar Bourbon Marinade
  • 1 cup cola-flavored carbonated beverage
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped fresh peaches (about 3 to 4 peaches) or 1 pound bag frozen peaches that have been thawed and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened (I used 1/3 reduced fat), softened

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onion, bacon, and cook 6 to 8 minutes or until bacon is crisp, stir intermittently.
  3. Stir Marinade Mix, cola, and brown sugar into skillet. (Use caution because when you add the cola because mixture will bubble up and create a lot of steam and possibly smoke. If you have a sensitive smoke detector like I do, open a window before you add it.)
  4. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer about 10 to 15 minutes or until mixture thickens and liquid volume has reduced by at least 50 percent; stir occasionally.
  5. Stir in peaches, pecans, and simmer until heated through; remove from heat and set aside.
  6. Spread cream cheese evenly in bottom of 9-inch pie dish. Top with peach mixture. Serve with assorted crackers or sliced French bread. Dip is best fresh but will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 3 days.
