Step 1: Make the Potatoes

Preheat oven to 375˚F. In a small bowl combine potato flakes and milk. Let sit 5 minutes until milk is absorbed.

Step 3: Assemble the Dip

In a large bowl combine potatoes, bacon less garnish, ¼ cup scallions, green chilies, sour cream, 1 ½ cup cheddar cheese and sour cream. Add the spices and mix until combined. Pour mixture into a 9in round baking dish.

Step 4: Bake and Eat!

Bake the dip for 30 minutes at 375˚F. Top with reserved bacon, scallions and cheese. Serve with lightly salted potato chips. If you’re feeling adventurous, eat it with waffle fries!

    This is an awesome dip! I made it for my son's first birthday party and the guests all loved it and there was no leftovers.
