Chips and dip are a match made in Heaven. Chips are on their own are wonderful, but when you add in a creamy dip, it does not get any better than that! French Onion dip used to be my go to dip, and while I like the store bought kind, I have an even better homemade version that I love to make. I just made the onion version for a party in January, so I wanted to do something different this time. After perusing the 3421 dips I have pinned, I settled on this one, a Loaded Baked Potato Dip. The best part of this dip is that it requires only 4 ingredients and the only cooking involved is to cook the bacon, so this makes it such an easy recipe to make ahead for a party. Some people asked, “Well, where’s the potato?” Its the chip! I hope you try this for your next party or whenever you are just craving some delicious chips and dip!
