My family loves to watch football, and this is the first year that my seven year-old is really excited to watch the game. Honestly, I think he's just as excited about the snacks as he is about the game. When it comes to snacks for the big game, I like to make easy, make ahead recipes so that I can watch the game, too.This Loaded Sour Cream Dip is just such a recipe. It starts with Shamrock Farms sour cream. Every Shamrock Farms product begins with pure, wholesome, nutritious milk with no added growth hormones. Shamrock Farms is a local company with a real, working dairy farm that's open to the public for tours October – May so you can see firsthand their commitment to high-quality animal care so their cows stay happy and healthy.One of the great things about this dip is that it tastes better the longer it rests. So, you can make it the day before the game, and then just grab it when you're ready.
Loaded Sour Cream Dip
- 1 1/2 cups Shamrock Farms sour cream
- 4 ounces cream cheese , at room temperature
- 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1 tablespoon dry ranch seasoning mix
- 1 tablespoon fresh chopped chives
- Salt and pepper
Mix sour cream and cream cheese together until well-combined.
Fold in cheese, bacon, ranch seasoning mix, and chives.
Taste, and season with salt and pepper as needed.
Cover, and chill for at least an hour. The longer you let it sit, the more the flavors will meld.
Take out the dip 15-20 minutes before serving to let it soften.
Serve with thick/sturdy potato chips.
