I love potato chips!

And when I say love them, I mean that they are my go-to snack anytime I get a craving for something salty, crunchy and just downright delicious.

But after years of eating chip after chip, I decided that it was time to give them some sort of a companion. A friend, if you will.

POTATO CHIP DIP INGREDIENTS

To make this potato chip dip, all you need is three simple ingredients:

 CREAM CHEESE: two (8oz) packages. Make sure the cream cheese is softened before mixing.

HOW TO MAKE POTATO CHIP DIP

STEP 1: In a large bowl, using an electric hand or stand mixer, whip cream cheese, chili sauce, and onion salt until creamy and smooth.

STEP 2: Place dip in a covered container. Put in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight before serving.

STEP 3: Serve with potato chips and enjoy.

ADDITIONAL BAKING TIPS

WHAT KIND OF CHILI SAUCE DO YOU USE?:  I’ve received a TON of questions about what kind of chili sauce I used. So, I used one 12 oz. jar of  Heinz Chili Sauce.

MAKE-AHEAD: This potato chip dip is perfect for making the day ahead of a party because it is the best when it has been chilled in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours before serving but I like to make it the day before, so when the guests arrive  I can just take it out of the fridge and it’s all ready to go.

SERVE WITH: Of course this dip is the best with potato chips but it’s also good with crackers, pretzels, and I even love it with french fries.

BAKING TOOLS NEEDED

ELECTRIC MIXER: You will need to use an electric mixer because the more this dip is whipped the better it is.

SPATULA: You can never have enough spatulas. 

CHIP & DIP BOWL: This is the chip & dip bowl that I used!

  1. This is very close to a dip that has been in my family for 4 gens. My grandma got it off the side of a box of chips. 1/4 cup each of french dressing and ketchup in place of chili sauce is the only difference. And my gramma grated onion on a microplane instead of salt or powder.

  2. Is it okay to use onion powder instead of salt?

  3. This truly is the best chip dip I’ve ever made! Delicious!

  4. The perfect dip for game day! I’m sure this would be gone so fast!

  5. I could munch on this all day! It’s the best

  6. This is one of our favorite chip dip recipes!!! So good.

  7. Added 1/2 pound cooked shrimp a touch of lemon juice and some fresh chopped dill, This was fabulous, If using frozen cooked shrimp squeeze out as much water between paper towels before adding to mixture.

  8. Made this with chopped green onions and small chopped salad shrimp. Delicious!! Found the Heinz Chili Sauce next to BBQ Sauce in Safeway, in a “catsup” bottle. Not spicy, so good!!

  9. Since it’s only cream cheese (and doesn’t have sour cream and/or mayo, etc) is it really thick especially if you use thinner potato chips rather than Ruffles or Kettle Fried Chips?  Maybe the chili sauce is enough to make more like a dip consistency, but just wanted to ask. How would u rank spice level?  Here lately I can’t handle any spice due to heartburn and dental issues causing my taste buds to be very sensitive. I wasn’t sure if the chili sauce is too hot for this sissy?  I definitely want to try it. 

    • It’s not thick at all because you whip the cream cheese and chili sauce together, you can use any chips. Also, it’s not spicy or hot AT ALL! Enjoy, you will love it!

  10. I will definitely try this. I love chips and dips. When I was in high school a friend made something similar. Try cream cheese, ketchup, and chop onion very fine and mix it together. Very good. 

  11. I have made a version of this dip and it is delicious.  One thing to try if you have left over lump crab meat, boiled shrimp or crawfish – chop small and add to the dip.  Yum!  Thank you for sharing your recipe.  

  12. That is how I make my shrimp dip

  13. OMG! I made this last weekend for my son’s graduation party. Everyone loved it! This will definitely be a keeper.

  14. Sounds good will have to try this .

  15. So it’s really just three ingredients–the cream cheese, while there are two packages used, is still just one ingredient–which makes it even more appealing. I’ll have to try this. I like potato chips occasionally, and a great dip makes them even more inviting to enjoy on those occasions.

    • Yea, it’s really only 3 ingredients! You will LOVE it, it’s one of the best dip recipes EVER! Every time I make and bring it to a party everyone loves it!

  16. What kind of chili sauce?

  17. What kind or brand of chili sauce.
    Thanks

  18. What size package of cream cheese?
