Cheesy Bacon Oven Chips with Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce

Lynn demonstrates how to make Cheesy Bacon Oven Chips with Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce.  This makes a great appetizer or snack.  From Pinterest.


  • 1 large uniformly-shaped russet potato, scrubbed well and sliced into 1/8" rounds
  • ¾ cup shredded Colby jack or cheddar cheese
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons crumbled bacon or real bacon bits
  • Chopped parsley or chives for garnish, optional

Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 Tablespoon ranch dressing
  • 3 Tablespoons sour cream
  • ¼ teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne (adjust to how spicy you want)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

To prepare Chips:

Preheat oven to 375°.  Spray a baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
Bring sliced potatoes to a boil in cold, salted water to cover for 5 minutes.  Carefully drain, and transfer slices to a paper-towel lined countertop or cutting board.  Pat to dry.

Lay out the potato slices on the baking pan.  Spray lightly with additional cooking spray, then sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste.  Sprinkle evenly with shredded cheese & bacon.

Bake 12-14 minutes in preheated oven until cheese is melted & bubbly.  Serve with chipotle ranch sauce.  Serves 2.

For the sauce, place all ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine.  Refrigerate any leftovers.

You can easily double this recipe or adjust to how much you need.  Same with the sauce.
