Mashed potatoes, meet –> chip dip.
Together, you make the BEST food mash up yet . . .
Mashed. Potato. Chip. Dip.
Oh HECK yes.
Ultra fluffy mashed potatoes made into a dip for, yep, you guessed it, crunchy, salty potato chips!
4th of July is upon us and I’m always looking for fun ways to mix it up a little bit.
Every 4th of July party needs a potato dish, but this year, instead of doing the classic potato salad, how about giving this Easy, Cheesy Mashed Potato Chip Dip a try?!
I promise you.
Everyone will go NUTS for this.
I am always, always, always looking for easy appetizer recipes.
Especially during the summer, because living in the Midwest, I seriously need to take advance of the next three months of gorgeous weather.
You with me?
That being said, I feel like I entertain WAY more in the summer than I do any other season.
So, again, I am always, always, always looking for easy appetizer recipes and Mashed Potato Chip Dip just so happens to be my latest creation. 😉
First, you’re going to start by cooking up some bacon. All good recipes start with bacon, do they not?
Then, you’re going to cook some jalapeno pepper, green onions, and garlic IN the leftover bacon grease <– OMG.
Set the above aside. 👆
Next, you’re going to make some mashed potatoes. Today, we’re keeping these ULTRA easy and delish by using Idahoan Signature™ Russets Mashed Potatoes.
Boil water –> stir in potatoes –> watch them magically turn into mashed potatoes (their best tasting and highest-quality classic mashed potatoes yet!) –> stir in mayo, sour cream, bacon/jalapeno/green onion/garlic, ranch seasoning, and TWO kinds of cheese: cheddar and mozzarella.
Lastly, you’re going to place the potato mixture into an oven safe baking dish and top with MORE cheese and crushed potato chips.
Bake it up and serve with potato chips, crackers, and more!
Just when you thought mashed potatoes couldn’t get better, this Mashed Potato Chip Dip was born.
Fluffy potatoes + crispy bacon, gooey cheese, and crunchy potato chips?!
You need this in your life. 🙂
What’s on YOUR 4th of July menu? Show Me the Yummy!
