Parties always have potato chips and ranch dip, right? This one takes the ranch dip to whole new level of yumminess! A loaded baked potato has sour cream, cheese, bacon and green onions…so that’s exactly what I added to make Loaded Potato Chip Dip. It’s simple, but so addicting.
How to Make Loaded Potato Chip Dip
I started with cooking bacon in a skillet over medium heat.
I always use a pair of kitchen scissors to cut the bacon into bite size pieces directly into the skillet.
After about 5 minutes the bacon is cooked, just drain on a few paper towels.
While the bacon was cooking I mixed the sour cream and packet of ranch seasoning in a large bowl.
I saved some of the cheese, bacon, and green onions to garnish the top.
The rest just gets thrown into the bowl.
Gotta love me for the fact that I always try to cut calories when I can, I actually used reduced fat sour cream and kind of laughed at myself as I added all that bacon and cheese…not to mention the potato chips!
This is one of those dips that’s worth every bite though.
Mix together and you have Loaded Potato Chip Dip.
Literally 5 minutes and it’s done!
Sprinkle the cheese, bacon, and green onions to garnish the top and serve with potato chips.
Helpful Hint: Choose a thicker cut potato chip, wavy chips work great, or kettle chips would be even better.
Thinner chips may break.
Also, straight from the fridge makes it more difficult to dip without breaking.
A few minutes at room temperature helps make Loaded Potato Chip Dip more dip-able 🙂
