Cheesy Bacon Oven Chips with Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce

Cheesy Bacon Oven Chips with Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce

YIELD: Makes about 25 chips and 1/4 cup dipping sauce


For Cheesy Bacon Oven Chips:
1 large russet potato, scrubbed and sliced into 1/8" rounds*
Nonstick cooking spray
8 oz. (2 cups) shredded Colby jack, cheddar cheese or Mexican cheese blend
6 slices bacon, cooked and chopped into bits
1/4 cup chopped parsley, chives or scallions, optional
Salt, to taste

For Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce:
1 Tablespoon Ranch dressing
3 Tablespoons sour cream
1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder


For Cheesy Bacon Oven Chips:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Arrange oven rack to middle of oven.
Lay out individual potato slices on a paper-towel lined surface. Pat slices dry with another layer of paper towels (The drier the potato slices, the crispier chips they’ll make!). Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly coat with cooking spray. Lay out potato slices about 1/2 inch from each other (not overlapping) and lightly coat with additional cooking spray. Sprinkle each slice with pinches of shredded cheese and crumbled bacon.
Bake 8-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with parsley and salt. Transfer chips to a cooling rack and let cool for 5 minutes.
Serve with Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce (recipe below).

For Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce:
Place all ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

You can also use 1 medium russet potato in place of 1/2 large potato.
I like to leave the skins on the potatoes, but you can peel if you prefer.
You can adjust spices for the dipping sauce as you prefer, according to how much spice you like.
