I found this dip while searching the web for something different from what I normally make. This dip was a HUGE hit at our latest party. It is creamy and tastes faintly of potatoes. Plus it has bacon and cheese on top of it. I served it with crispy waffle fries and it tasted just like a loaded potato skin. Our guests gobbled it up and it's a great dip for kids too.
5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 ½ c. lowfat sour cream
1 c. cream cheese
½ c. instant potato flakes
2 c. cheddar cheese
⅓ c. sliced fresh chives
2 t. hot sauce
1 t. black pepper
1 large bag waffle fries
1. Stir together sour cream, cream cheese, and potato flakes. Mix in half the bacon, half the cheese, and half the chives. Add in the hot sauce and black pepper and mix until everything is well combined.
2. Pour dip into a 8x8 baking pan. Top with remaining cheese. Refrigerate for up to one day.
3. Twenty minutes before serving preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place dip in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and top with bacon and chives. Serve with crispy waffle fries.
