Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Ok, I am not even sure where to start.  This dip is amazing! Sorry for the strange picture, this was the only bowl I have and I was too anxious to eat it and forgot to wipe down the edges! haha..

Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Bake frozen waffle fries extra-crispy for our dippers

Yield:  Makes about 4 cups
1 (2.1-oz.) package fully cooked bacon slices
1 (16-oz.) container sour cream
2 cups (8 oz.) freshly shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/3 cup sliced fresh chives
2 teaspoons hot sauce

Garnishes: cooked, crumbled bacon; sliced fresh chives; freshly cracked pepper

Serve with: waffle fries

Microwave bacon according to package directions until crisp; drain on paper towels. Cool 10 minutes; crumble. Stir together bacon and next 4 ingredients. Cover and chill 1 to 24 hours before serving. Garnish, if desired. Serve with crispy, warm waffle fries. Store leftovers in refrigerator up to 7 days.

Jenna's Notes:
I did not have chives so I left them out.  I also only bought an 8 oz. container of sour cream so I modified everything a little bit, just to taste.  I used this for the hot sauce:
(Salsa from Sonic- Since this was all I had!)

I added fresh cracked pepper:

And instead of serving with waffle fries, I used Walmart brand ridged potato chips.

Oh, and an important note....I did not wait for this dip to chill and I already went and bought more ingredients to make it again. Because it did NOT last for 7 days.

try it!


  1. looks good! will need to fry some bacon and make this soon!

  2. Looks great. We will try it next week(when I can get grocery money again) for the Super Bowl.
