This Loaded Baked Potato Dip recipe is easy to make. A creamy dip with bacon is the perfect party appetizer when served with potato chips or waffle fries!
I’ve got a funny story about this recipe. I made this dip, shot the video, took the pictures and shared the dip with a bunch of middle school and high school kids. They loved it and I loved it. I edited the video and edited the pictures and then realized that I never added the shredded cheese to the dip!!
But NO ONE missed it. Not the kids, not me while I was eating it and not even while I was editing the video and photos. Moral of the story is that you can add shredded cheese to the dip but you probably won’t miss it if you don’t.

How To Make Loaded Baked Potato Dip
Step One: Bacon
To make this Loaded Baked Potato Dip, start by chopping cooked bacon and chives. To save time, I used store-bought fully cooked bacon. If you are really in a hurry, you could try bacon bits.
Step Two: Ingredients
Put the sour cream, cream cheese, powdered ranch, garlic powder, chopped bacon and chopped chives in a bowl.
Step Three: Mix
Mix until combined. You could stir it by hand if your cream cheese is soft enough but I prefer using either a hand mixer or a stand mixer.
Step Four: Garnish
Scoop the dip into a bowl and top with a little chopped bacon, chopped chives, and black pepper.
Cover the dip and refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight.
