Loaded Baked Potato Dip

November 14, 2012 in appetizer by amanda


One of my favorite things to make for parties or just for days I’m hanging out watching football games are dips. Dips are so versatile and it seems like almost everyone likes them. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy dipping a crunchy chip into a deliciously creamy dip?

I came up with this Loaded Baked Potato Dip to go with Kettle Brand Chips, which is one of my all time favorite brand of chips. I survived on their Sea Salt & Vinegar chips during my 2nd pregnancy – I swear I would have starved if it wasn’t for them. But for this dip, I used the Sea Salt which is another favorite of mine. A lot of times plain chips are either too salty or not salty enough for me but these are just right. They are perfect and I could easily eat an entire bag in day. Not that I did that or anything…

Kettle Brand has over 30 flavors of potato chips that you can check out here. You better believe I went searching for the New York Cheddar flavor after I found out about it. That one, by the way, would also go great with this dip.

So about the dip? I was really craving a good loaded baked potato when I made it so it is everything you would typically put into one – sour cream, bacon, cheddar cheese – but without the potato! It is served piping hot so it really does taste just like a loaded baked potato with the Kettle Brand Sea Salt chips. It is absolutely delicious! All the cream cheese and sour cream mixed with the salty bacon and sharp cheddar is just perfection. It is also incredibly easy and fast to whip up if you’re throwing a party or like I said earlier, just hanging out at the house watching some football. The ingredient list is super short and you likely have everything on hand already! If you are a fan of loaded or twice baked potatoes or just a fan of dips, you will definitely love this! Make sure you stock up on Kettle Brand Sea Salt or New York Cheddar chips before you make them.
