This Dip ROCKS!

I've been cooking up a storm in July! Like every other person i know is a summer baby, so parties are meant to be had, and i've been throwing them AND cooking for them too! Wee! I LOVE throwing parties, it's hella fun, BUT hella stressful leading up to the moment the first guests arrive. But once they walk in, we eat, drink and get our merry on! :)

I always try new recipes for parties, this is both good and bad, cause well you know how i cook, everything that comes out of my kitchen isn't exactly a guaranteed 'hit'. I usually head to allrecipes with an ingredient in mind and start my search there. The next couple posts will highlight some of the new party recipes i tried this season.

But first, an old favorite. From the first time i made this dip, about 2 years ago, it has been a hit hit hit at EVERY party.

Baked Potato Dip

I serve it with kettle cooked potato chips and crudites, but who are we kidding, i always end up eating the veggies the day after the party. This dip screams for some delicious potato chips.

I always half the recipe, and add 1/2 a packet of ranch dressing. It can easily be made with fat free sour cream and cheese and turkey bacon without sacrificing any flavor, just don't tell anyone you went the 'light' route. ;)

So if you are feeling naughty or nice, this is the perfect dip depending how you choose to prepare it.
