Loaded Baked Potato Dip has all of the toppings we typically put on a scrumptious loaded baked potato, but in dip form, which makes it so much more fun, right?! It's an appetizer! That alone makes it a party in a bowl <smile>

This dippable appetizer is made with sour cream, cheddar cheese, BACON, potatoes, and chives too! Everything you expect on a loaded baked potato, so naturally it tastes just like those comforting loaded spuds I sometimes like to enjoy for dinner, only better, because you eat it on CHIPS! AmIRight? You know it!

To ensure a lip-smacking good dip, I always use the best quality and freshest ingredients I can get my hands on. My favorite cream cheese, sharp cheddar that I shred myself, thick-cut bacon, fresh chives, and Idaho® potatoes are a must for me. Idaho's unique growing season of warm days and cool nights, water straight from the mountains, and rich volcanic soil give Idaho® potatoes their exceptional texture and taste. You know you're getting the best of the best in potatoes when you see the "Grown In Idaho" seal.

To make this crave-able dip I used one Idaho® russet potato and baked it in the microwave, because I couldn't wait to get this Loaded Baked Potato Dip in my belly, and the microwave made quick work of baking my potato. You can absolutely bake it in the oven if you like. I let the potato cool so my delicate little fingers could handle it, and then chopped the potato up into bite-sized pieces. I left the skin on, but you can remove it if you prefer. In a mixing bowl I combined the baked potato with sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped bacon, and chives.

Next I mixed it up...

gave it a taste and seasoned it with some salt and freshly ground black pepper too. I kept tasting until I got the seasoning just right. I may or may not have eaten a small child's weight in dip, but I'll never tell <grin>

You can serve this up right away and enjoy with your favorite potato chips. Home baked Idaho® potato chips made the perfect dipper for this tasty appetizer and they are super easy to make too.
