On this blog, we primarily do easy recipes. Recipes with simple processes that can quickly be thrown together for your friends and family – whether it be for game nights, game days, or a couples’ date nights. As the main hosts for our friends over the years, we have a list of party dip recipes that we depend on because they’re easy to make and easy to serve! This Loaded Potato Chip Dip tops the list as our favorite chip dip recipe, and it’s always a hit!
It’s easy to understand why this is our favorite – it has lots of cheese, sour cream, and bacon! I mean, you basically have me won over at bacon alone. Yum!
In case you might be curious, our favorite party dip recipe that I wouldn’t classify as a chip dip is our Baked Goat Cheese Marinara Dip that I serve with warm breadsticks or crostini – it’s absolutely addicting. Our favorite dessert dips are Loaded Cookie Dough Dip or Funfetti Cheesecake Dip!
HOW TO MAKE THIS LOADED BAKED POTATO CHIP DIP RECIPE:
This Loaded Baked Potato Dip Recipe is one of the easiest chip dip recipes you can make. Truly! The hardest part of the entire recipe is cooking the bacon if you decide to cook your own bacon crumbles instead of buying packaged bacon crumbles.
When you’re ready to whip it up, toss classic baked potato toppings like chives, bacon, and cheddar cheese into a sour cream base and mix well! Add a little salt and pepper to season. If you have other favorite loaded potato toppings, like ranch, toss that into this dip as well. It’s easy to customize.
For those that are wondering, the potato part of this chip dip recipe is the potato chip! The dip is pretty tasty served with pretzels though as well.
We definitely like to load this chip dip recipe up with lots of cheese! I am a good old midwestern cheese addict after all! 😉 Therefore, you will want nice, sturdy potato chips!
HELPFUL ITEMS FOR MAKING THIS CHIP DIP RECIPE:

FAVORITE GAME DAY RECIPES AND PARTY FOOD:
This loaded chip dip is almost always made for the Big Game! I haven’t decided the rest of our game day menu yet, but this one is an easy guarantee. Bryan pretty much asks for it every time we get together with friends for a football game and sometimes when it’s just us, too. Like I said, it’s our favorite.
With only 6 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep time, how could I not make this for game day?!
Other than this dip though, we like to include a few key items onto our game day or party menu:
Meatballs are a super easy game day food to add to the menu that can be tossed into a slow cooker that adds a nice, hearty protein to the menu. We like ones that are cocktail sized for a bite sized appetizer but it’s always nice a big enough serving feels more like dinner. Our favorites are Peach BBQ Meatballs, Honey Sriracha Meatballs, and homemade Buffalo Chicken Meatballs.
When looking for something more meal like, we like adding flatbreads onto our game day menus as well. We usually toss them together quickly beforehand and then put into the oven when we are ready to enjoy. They’re easy to make and especially yummy! With friends over, we usually make either Buffalo Chicken Flatbread or BBQ Pork Flatbread.
If looking for ways to add lots of veggies to the menu, you could also make a Cream Cheese and Dill Veggie Pizza!

I have not seen this dip using real bacon, I have always made mine with store bought bacon crumbles. I will definitely have to give this a try by frying up my own bacon. I love it with dry ranch packets mixed in to it too. Definitely one of my go to dips as well it is always a big hit at parties.
