Loaded Potato Dip

Loaded Potato Dip

Can you believe that 2012 is almost over?!  Only one day left before we ring in the New Year!  I hope that you have all had a great year and that 2013 will be even better.

I want to apologize for my lack of posts lately!  We have had a friend, named Jean Claude, visiting us all the way from Rwanda.  We met him while we were on a mission trip there this past summer.  He has a ministry called Best Family Rwanda, and we have been helping him advocate for the orphans in his program while he’s here in the U.S.   So we’ve been very busy traveling, organizing speaking arrangements, and introducing him to a network of supporters.  It has been an incredible week of ministry and seeing God get the glory through Jean Claude’s testimony and his obedience to God.


Anyways, I have a few spare minutes to post this fabulous recipe for you!  This Loaded Potato Dip would be perfect for a New Year’s Eve Party! And for you football fans, there are lots of bowl games coming up this week.  I know you’ll want to serve them this delicious dip for game time! It’s also REALLY easy to throw together.

Yields: About 4 cups (we used a whole bag of ruffles chips and still had some dip left over)

Ingredients:
16 ounces sour cream
16 slices (12-ounce package) bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)
1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions or chives

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl.  Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving to allow flavors to meld together (don’t skip this step!  It’s not very good if you eat it before it’s had time to chill for a while).

Garnish with extra shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, and chopped chives. Serve with your favorite potato chips or pretzel crisps.

Dip can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

      haha ya know, that’s exactly what I said when I found this recipe. It actually doesn’t have potatoes (unless you count the potato chips). I guess it got its name because it involves the ingredients that you would put in a loaded potato…
