How to Make Easy Loaded Baked Potato Dip
If your bacon is not already cooked, prepare according to package directions. Drain or pat dry to remove grease, then allow to cool for at least ten minutes. If your bacon IS already cooked and ready to go, skip ahead to the next step.
TIP: Prepare the bacon in advance and when you’re ready to make the dip you don’t have to wait for it to cool. You can also use pre-cooked bacon to save time.
Crumble bacon into a medium mixing bowl.
Add sour cream, cheese, chives, and hot sauce to the bowl. Stir together until all ingredients are well incorporated.
TIP: Customize this recipe by adding YOUR favorite baked potato toppings to the mix!
You can enjoy the baked potato dip right away, or you can cover and refrigerate at least an hour to allow flavors to mingle. Feel free to keep chilled longer if needed before serving.
Sprinkle with salt and fresh cracked black pepper before serving.
Enjoy with: Potato chips, waffle fries, crostini, or fresh veggies!
