Microwave potatoes until fork-tender, 68 minutes; let cool slightly.

Cook bacon in a skillet until crisp; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Reserve ¼ cup drippings in skillet. Increase heat to high.

Smash each potato and fry in drippings until crisp on each side; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Add scallion whites to skillet and cook to soften, 2 minutes.

Stir together sour cream, Cheddar, cream, ranch mix, and scallion whites in a 1- to 2-qt slow cooker; top with potatoes in a single layer. Cover slow cooker and let dip cook until cheese melts, on low setting, about 11/2 hours. Add bacon and scallion greens; stir to incorporate and break apart potatoes. Season dip with Tabasco, salt, and pepper.
