Loaded Baked Potato Chip Dip for Game Day

Loaded Baked Potato Chip Dip

I can normally pass up chips on a buffet table spread but if you have a dip next to those chips, oh boy, this girl is all over it.  Same goes for veggies and fruit.  If there is a dip next to them, they just seem more appealing.  Why is that?

Why do breadsticks taste better with marinara sauce?

Or French fries with ketchup?

Or broccoli with ranch dressing?

Or tortilla chips with salsa?

Loaded Baked Potato Chip Dip

I mean all of these foods taste fine by themselves but dip it in a complimenting sauce and you have something even better.

If you are serving fruit, try this dip.

Serving veggies, crackers or chips? Try either this one or this one.

This Loaded Baked Potato Chip Dip is a must try.  It’s perfect for game day, or a birthday or holiday party. But if you don’t have a party planned, there is no reason why you can’t make it just for yourself.  That’s what I did.

    I gained a few pounds just looking at this. There’s a 99% probability this will be on the table for the Super Bowl this year! I’m here from the SITS girls foodie tribe 😉

      Thanks for stopping by Shawnda and BTW – if you looked at this while standing up – you gained 0 pounds. Same goes for if you eat it standing up. 🙂

    betty — January 21, 2014 at 6:13 pm

    What kind of hot sauce do you put in it ?

    • Kendra replied: — January 21st, 2014 @ 6:32 pm

      Hi Betty! Thanks for stopping by. You could use any brand of hot sauce but I used Frank’s Red Hot Original. The hot sauce added just a nice little flavor to the sour cream but it wasn’t overwhelming. The first time I made it I used only 1 tablespoon and I felt it needed more. The next time I made it, 2 tablespoons seemed to be just right for us.

    Audrey — January 24, 2014 at 8:49 am

    Wow, this looks delish! What type of hot sauce should be used with this? Tabasco, taco sauce, tapatio?? Making this for Superbowl and want it to taste right! Thanks!

    • Kendra replied: — January 24th, 2014 @ 8:53 am

      Hi Audrey – thanks for stopping by. I used Frank’s Red Hot Original but you could use almost any kind of hot sauce you have in the pantry. Tabasco would give it even more of a kick if you like that. I hope you like it!
