This easy Potato Chip Dip is a two-ingredient dip made from Chef’s Seasoning, manufactured locally in Ohio, and delicious sour cream! It’s a crazy easy snack and side that can be made in minutes. It is the BEST potato chip dip recipe!
We love, love, love this simple potato chip dip. It’s the perfect quick snack to bring to all occasions and is loved by all. I have made this dip for BBQs, family parties, pool parties, holidays, and movie nights at home. We have it so often that I always make it a point to keep the ingredients on hand. We always have extra sour cream in the refrigerator and ripple chips in the freezer. (Yes, you can store chips in the freezer. It’s one of life’s best-kept secrets. They stay fresh longer and are out of sight and out of mind until you need them. Plus, eating a ‘cold’ chip is weirdly amazing!)
Sour Cream Chip Dip
Ingredients for Potato Chip Dip
- 16-ounce container of sour cream
- 2 tablespoons of Wildman’s Chef’s Seasoning, locally found and made in Ohio but is also sold on their website!
Wildman’s is a gourmet spices, extracts, and seasonings company that has been in business since 1895. Chef’s Seasoning was introduced to us by a friend who made this chip dip. They originally got it off the back of the seasoning bottle but always just measured with their heart. However, having made this a ‘million’ times, we have finally found our perfect measurements. It’s definitely got a bit more of a punch. That being said, if you don’t want it to be too salty, try adding 1-1.5 tablespoons of Chef’s Seasoning and go from there. Then add a bit more if you want more flavor.
Then don’t forget the CHIPS! Ripple chips are hands down the best chip for this potato chip dip. They grip all that yummy dip so every bit is perfect! Now, we are a bit of ripple chip connoisseurs. Ripple chips are cheap, a blessing in this economy; however, not all off-brands are created equal. We have found that Wal-Mart’s brand Great Value ripple chips are saltier and have a bigger crunch than Aldi’s ripple chip any day. And get a bag or two!
Directions for Potato Chip Dip
Dare I even say there are directions? This easy dip hardly needs directions, but as with all great things, the devil is in the details!
First, add the Chef’s Seasoning to the sour cream container and mix carefully until thoroughly blended. Chill for two hours before serving. Then dip those chips and enjoy!
*Allowing the dip to marinate and chill is best; however, we have started dipping immediately after making this potato dip too, and it’s still amazing. The dip tends to taste less salty the more it incorporates and has time to chill.
*This long-handle flat stirring spatula is the perfect tool to make sour cream dips. They are great for scraping the sides to incorporate all the sour cream while not upsetting any powder mix. It’s the secret weapon of choice!
