Cheesy ranch chip potato casserole is a delicious, comforting, and crunchy side dish that is full of flavor and a family favorite!


My hatred for condiments is well documented.

Simple things like BBQ sauce, ketchup, mayonnaise — and salad dressing — make me squirm. I hate condiments to the very core of my being – and pretty much all things that taste like them.

It should be a little surprising then that I love (like, LOVE LOVE) anything ranch.

Don’t get me wrong – I don’t like the dressing. But the spice packets? Yea…. they are totally my weakness. And Cooler Ranch Doritos? Game over.

I could eat the whole bag!

Today I’m mixing those crunchy, tangy, savory chips from heaven with a super cheesy, delicious baked mashed potato casserole.

Heaven? I think so.



I am loosely basing this delicious dish off Erin from Dinner Dishes and Dessert’s Loaded Twice Baked Potato Casserole – which I have to say, is so incredibly delicious you do NOT want to miss it! I recently had some with her and MAN it was so good!
