Bacon Ranch Baked Potato Dip

Potato chips are a dangerous thing to have around our house. Pastor Alaska and my oldest son devour them. I mean they pour the crumbs from the bottom of the bag into their gaping wide-open mouths and then lick the bag afterward kind of devouring. A bag of chips doesn’t last long around here. And, if we’re going to have potato chips around the house, Kettle Brand Chips are our fav. I’m a fan of the kettle-cooked crunch, the all-natural ingredients, and the variety of flavors. 33 flavors and varieties of chips to be exact, flavors from pure and classic to edgy and on-trend. Who can resist flavors like Honey Dijon or Spicy Thai (a couple of my personal favorites) in a potato chip? I mean, really? Amazing. And I can’t wait to try the Buffalo Bleu.

This is why I was excited to be asked by Kettle Brand Chips to develop a dip recipe and to host a $100 Visa Card Giveaway for my readers. First, we have the recipe.

When I got to thinking about creating a dip, I thought about all of the ingredients that pair well with potatoes – cheddar cheese, crisp bacon, sour cream, green onions, and the flavors of homemade ranch dressing. Mmmm. Then, I whipped up a batch of creamy, cold, cheesy dip and sampled it with the Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper Kettle Brand Chips. It was delicious. And then I decided to take it one step further. I put the batch of dip into the oven for 20 minutes and turned it into a hot, gooey, melty, smoky dip. I topped the hot dip with sliced green onions, crispy crumbled bacon, diced fresh tomatoes, and more cheddar cheese. Ah, even better.

My trusty taste-testers and I also sampled this dip recipe with New York Cheddar and Backyard Barbeque Kettle Brand Chips in addition to the Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper Kettle Brand Chips. They were all pretty darn fantastic. No matter which flavor of Kettle Brand Chips you choose, I think you’ll love this versatile hot or cold Bacon Ranch Baked Potato Dip.
