I will be featuring some Game Day Food this week in honor of the Super Bowl coming up this Sunday. This Loaded Baked Potato Dip is loaded (pardon the pun) with lots of great flavors; sour cream, cheese, onion and bacon. What’s not to love, right?
Loaded Baked Potato Dip is best made ahead of time because the taste gets better the longer it sits. The obvious choice to serve this dip with is potato chips, but we all know chips are high in fat. I also serve this dip with carrots, celery or even tortilla chips.
You can easily use low fat or fat free sour cream and reduced fat cheese if you want to cut back on the fat content. And of course, when you are done frying your bacon place it on paper towel and blot off the fat. One tidbit, these steps will help cut back in fat and calorie content.
- 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
- 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
- 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1/3 cup chives, diced or 6 green onions, sliced
- salt, pepper and cayenne to taste (optional)
- Mix everything and enjoy scooping with potato chips.
This dip is even better when made a day ahead to give the flavors a chance to come out.

I think game day is one of those days we can forgive ourselves for indulging, so I’m going to go ahead and give myself permission to dip potato chips in the loaded baked potato dip for extra double potato happiness! This sounds heavenly. Thank you for sharing it!

I’m going to put some on my baked taters too. Thank y’all.
how many potatoes????
No potatoes in the dip. The dip resembles the ingredients you would put on top of a baked potato.
Why does this dip look so chunky. I shared this and that is the question i have been asked. I realize there are no potatoes in it but it does look chunky for not having potatoes. Thank you for your answer in advance.
I think it looks chunky because there is more cheese and bacon than there is sour cream. I hope that helps.

so there is no potato in it?
No baked potato in the dip, the ingredients are those that you would normally put on a baked potato.
Interesting. Are their not potatoes in this recipe?
Sorry, no potatoes in the dip. The dip resembles the ingredients that you would put on top of a baked potato.
Confused dip is called loaded baked potato dip but doesn’t say any potato in the ingredients
It’s called that because all of the ingredients are what you can put on a baked potato. Sorry for the confusion.
