unnamed

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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:
