Warm Artichoke & Cilantro Pizza Dipping sauce:

Garnish: fresh cilantro springs


    • Heat oven to 350°F. Place 4 large squares of aluminum foil (shiny side up) on cookie sheets and lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray
    • Place bun in centre of foil. Cut buns, using serrated bread knife, in grid pattern, about 4 rows each way ( lengthwise and widthwise),  spacing about ½ -inch between rows.  Do not cut all the way through bottom crust. Set aside.
    • Finely chop jalapenos and bacon bits and mix together. Spoon mixture in between slices in bun- try to get a little into all the spaces.
    • Slice each cheese slice into 4-6 strips and put into sliced rows. Again, try to get small pieces into all the spaces where the bread is cut.

    • Combine melted butter and dry ranch dressing in bowl.
    • Drizzle butter/ranch mixture over buns, dividing between all 4 buns
    • Pull foil up meeting the ends at the top and sealing as much as possible - try to avoid pressing against the bun.
    • Bake for 12 minutes, then unwrap and return to oven for an additional 3-5 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and the bun is a light golden brown. Serve with warm Artichoke & Cilantro Pizza dip.

    • Bake 20 minutes until hot and bubbly.
    • Garnish with springs of cilantro and serve immediately in individual sauce bowls.
    • Tear off pieces of the mini party pull-aparts and dip into the sauce. Enjoy!
