These Cheesy Spicy Ranch Stuffed Baked Potatoes are the most delicious baked potato you’ll ever eat!

Oh friends.

I can’t even explain to you how in love with today’s post I am.

I mean, like, if I could marry a potato, this here tater would be mah man.

I am a potato gal through and through. And through.

Add to a potato some cheesy, spicy goodness and the rest is history.

Let’s talk dirty details.

This year I am working with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese…and it’s been a match made in heaven. I use cream cheese in an obscene amount of my recipes, and this one was a happy coincidence. You know that crazy addicting Buffalo Chicken Dip that everyone goes nuts for? Well this is like that, but better. How is that even possible you ask? Well let’s discuss…

I went ahead and seasoned some big ol’ potatoes with salt and pepper and baked the living daylights out of them.

You can wrap them in foil too and they will stay warm forever, so these are perfect for game day tailgating or parties.

Next up you’ll need some cooked chicken. I cheated on this part with one of those handy Rotisserie Chickens that they sell at the supermarket. If you are crazy and don’t love those chickens, just cook up some chicken breasts and shred or dice them. You’ll need about 4 cups.

Next I mixed some softened butter with some PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese and a packet of Ranch seasoning. Oh..And some hot sauce. People. Hot sauce makes it all worth while.

I love adding PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese to this recipe because it’s so creamy. They use fresh local milk and real cream with NO preservatives in the original cream cheese brick. LOVE that!

Just mix that cheesy, ranchy deliciousness with your chicken.

You can keep this warm in a crock pot if you’re serving it for a party or make it right before you’re ready to serve…it’s so simple.

Then just stuff your potatoes with all that jazz…

And top it with more cheese.

And you know I just thought that I should have added bacon. DANG IT!

 

BUt with or without the bacon you’ve got yourself a potato that you will want to put a ring on. I swear to you…

Hi Shelly!

I absolutely love your blog! For the potato recipe with Philadelphia Cream Cheese – are you supposed to scoop out the potato and mix it with the chicken and cream cheese?

Have a great day!

My family is going to love these! Ranch and Red Hot are two of my favorite toppings for chicken and putting it all in a potato is genius!

I’m a potato girl too, I think I would die if I was allergic or something! Going to have to apologise to my partner as I’d marry this potato too! 🙂

I’ve never really been a potato girl, but after looking at those pictures, I’m thinking that I just haven’t been eating the right potatoes! Those look so, so good. Maybe it’s the cheesy buffalo chicken, but I definitely need to try these! Pinned!
