I caught my sister Julia, the infamous potato-hating sister, dipping chips into this. When I questioned her, she admitted that she was that desperate for a vehicle to transport the dip from dish to mouth! If that's not proof of a good dip, I don't know what is! Baked potatoes are a little heavy for the heat of July, but you can still get your fix with this dip...tasty enough to convert a sweets lover and a potato hater!
