So I know that it’s resolution time. The gym is full and there is lots of healthy eating going on. I definitely am back on the healthy eating train, but I also know that it’s NFL playoff time. That definitely calls for some awesome appetizers, so I have a few to share with you in the next couple weeks. This loaded baked potato dip is floating around the internet in lots of places, but I thought I would change it up a bit and add some ranch dressing mix and it took the flavor over the top! This dip is amazing and super addictive, perfect for any party! Oh and just to clarify, there aren’t any potatoes in this dip, it’s just all the things that normally top a loaded baked potato.
