- Hot sauce (we used Tapatio)

How to make Baked Potato Dip
Did I mention that there was just one simple step to this easy dip recipe? This recipe just keeps getting better and better!
- Add all the ingredients (minus the bread) into a bowl and mix. Put it in the fridge until it’s time to eat. Add the chives as garnish and serve with the bread.
Use Greek yogurt – If you don’t have sour cream, unflavored Greek yogurt will do the trick! It literally tastes the exact same and might actually be a bit better for you.
Vary up the added cheese – I love using cheddar cheese, but change it up. You can do Colby cheese, pepper jack cheese, or any other type that you like.
Use turkey bacon – If you want to cut down on some of the fat content, you can use turkey bacon instead of pork bacon.
WHAT ELSE CAN BE USED TO PAIR WITH HOMEMADE DIPS?
Bread is always a great option when it comes to dips, but you can also use chopped veggies as well. Sliced bell peppers, chopped celery, baby carrots, sliced zucchini, and even cut-up squash are all great for dipping and eating.
CAN I FREEZE THIS DIP RECIPE?
Since there is sour cream in the dip, it’s best served fresh. Attempting to freeze sour cream and then thaw it is possible, but it may “break” or separate and cause a weird texture or taste. It’s not recommended to freeze this dip.
CAN I LEAVE OUT THE HOT SAUCE?
You bet. If you’re not a fan of heat, don’t make the dip spicy. Just leave out the hot sauce, or add it to your own individual serving bowl.
WHAT OTHER TOPPINGS WOULD PAIR WITH THIS DIP?
There are so many great topping ideas that you can use! Fresh cilantro would be a great topping with a refreshing flavor. You could also add fried onions on top or even caramelized onions as well.
HOW DO I STORE LEFTOVER DIP?
The best way to store leftover dip to keep it fresh is to keep it chilled in the fridge. Add it to a container with a lid, and keep it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
DO I NEED A MIXER OR BLENDER FOR THIS RECIPE?
Not at all! You just need to be able to add all the ingredients into a bowl and stir. That’s it! Save yourself some clean-up time and just dirty up a spoon or spatula instead.
As you can see, this easy appetizer dip would be great to snack on for a tailgate snack or a great way to have an appetizer to share with family and friends. There’s no wrong way or time to whip up and enjoy this simple potato dip recipe!
