"This is the easiest recipe because it can be altered in so many ways. Add a little taco seasoning to spice it up -- or you can add other veggies for texture."

  2. Combine the sour cream and ranch dressing mix in a small bowl until well-blended. Transfer the potatoes, bacon, Cheddar cheese, and green onions to a large bowl. Stir in the sour cream mixture until well-coated. Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours before serving.
