People love this...just don't add all of the hot sauce - it overpowers the flavor. I think I cut it in half last time

I made this dip for "Super Sunday". It was an all-a-round hit! The waffles fries are a must but only if they are hot out of the oven...I will definitely make this one AGAIN :)

I recently made this dip. I thought it was just okay. I threw most of it away, because nobody was eating it. I would not make this again.

Made this for a crowd and served it with little mini roasted potatoes. I added a cup of prepared buttermilk ranch dressing along with a half package of dry ranch dressing mix to add more flavor and thin it out a bit. Also doubled the bacon (isn't everything better with more bacon?) It was an incredibly popular appetizer!

I forgot to add the hot sauce in this recipe, but it was still great. I do believe though that the sour cream needs to be cut with something else, it was a bit strong. A great change for sure. I think the next time I make it, I will try to make it with some cream cheese so I can heat it up and then add in the sour cream last once it's cooled a bit. I also thought it needed more onion flavor, so I added some grated onion. Still, it was great and I will make it again!

I just made this, and haven't brought it to the party yet, but it tasted good to me! If you don't think it has enough flavor ( I didn't when made according to recipe), add a whole 16 oz. of bacon, extra hot sauce, green onion (instead of chives), and black pepper. I can't wait to share it with my friends!

This is a great recipe. It's easy and versatile, since you can adjust the hot sauce and onion to your taste. My family loves it. The waffle fries are delicious and decorative.

Very easy to make and pretty tasty. I made this for a bunch of teenage boys watching the Super Bowl and they all loved it. I agree with the previous review to serve it at room temperature because it's pretty thick. The longer it sits, the better the flavors meld together. I would definitely make this again!

My family and I really enjoy this dip. We've had it with waffle fries and also with potato chips. I have also made it with green onions and with chives. We like it either way. I have not tried ranch dip; I think the dip tastes great as is.
