Why this Recipe Works

I have a thing for dips. Creamy hot ones like this Pepperonio Pizza dip and fresh cold dips like Fruit Salsa— I love them all.

If you can scoop it up with chips, I’m in. Today’s recipe is based on the belief that everything is better in dip form!

This Loaded Baked Potato Dip is even easier to make than regular Baked Potatoes. No scrubbing or cooking potatoes required.

Making this dip is a simple as mixing, heating and serving. You can make it in the oven OR in the microwave!

Some people even love this dip served cold without melting the cheese. If that’s you, just mix the ingredients together, chill and serve.

I find Loaded Baked Potato Dip is delicious both hot and cold. Serve it warm for an appetizer tonight and chill the leftovers for tomorrow’s snacking.
