Bacon and horseradish sour cream dip

I was out of dip for my potato chips, so I thought I'd just make some! I looked at a few recipes online, and took bits and pieces of them and some intuition and here's what I came up with. It was really good; I think I'll just make it myself from now on!

1/2 cup sour cream
2 tbsp. prepared horseradish
1 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 slice cooked bacon, minced

Measurements are approximate as I was just throwing stuff in and tasting it.

It's probably a good idea to make this several hours ahead of time.  Put it in the refrigerator to let the bacon flavor infuse into the sour cream.

There are some weird recipes out there. One used cream cheese, which seems awfully stiff. The picture looked more like a spread. And one used 50 % sour cream to 50 % mayonnaise, which seems like an excessive amount of mayo. I'm not even sure it needs the mayo, but I added a little since it seemed a little too stiff.

And every recipe I looked at used imitation bacon bits, which is just silly. I make and freeze 2 pounds of bacon at a time, so I always have real bacon ready for just such purposes.
