Every year Matt and his friends celebrate the Masters Tournament weekend with a round of golf followed by a cookout. I have a handful of go-to appetizers that I usually have most of the ingredients already on hand for and can quickly prepare and for this occasion I knew my loaded baked potato dip would be perfect! This dip never fails for parties and get-togethers. Who doesn’t love loaded baked potatoes served in dip form on a chip?!
Loaded Baked Potato Dip
1/2 cup instant potato flakes
1/2 cup milk
1 cup Light Sour Cream
1/2 cup (1/2 of 8-oz. tub) Chive & Onion Cream Cheese Spread
2 green onions, sliced, divided
1 cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 Tbsp. Real Bacon Bits
Ritz Toasted Chips Original or Wheat Thins
Heat oven to 350ºF. Mix potato flakes and milk in large bowl; let stand 5 min. or until milk is absorbed. Add sour cream, cream cheese spread and half the onions; mix well. Spoon into baking dish; sprinkle with shredded cheese and bacon bits. Bake 15 to 20 min. or until shredded cheese is melted and dip is heated through. Sprinkle with remaining onions. Serve with chips.
