Homemade Baked Potato Chips W/Dip

Start by thinly slicing potatoes. I used a mandoline for nice, even slices, but you could also do this with a vegetable peeler or in your food processor, too.

Lay out the potatoes and brush lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. These get put into a fairly hot oven and then baked into golden glory goodness. Drain them on a baking rack, paper bag or kitchen towel.

For the dip, we’re going to start with creamy and ripe avocados. Mine were a gift from California Avocados Direct and were some of the best avocados I’ve had. They were fresh and creamy and completely void of those annoying strings you so often see in store-bought avocados. The creamy green was perfect for eating on its own or turning into dips and spreads or, in this case, avocado ranch dip.

Mix in Greek yogurt, lemon juice, a cocktail of spices and herbs and mash in the avocados for a dip that is made for those hearty potato chips.

Packed tightly inside a lemon-rubbed canning jar and then covered with a piece of parchment, this avocado dip won’t brown nearly as easily as guacamole. Squeeze out as many air bubbles as you can while packing, cover with a piece of parchment right on top and then seal with the lid. You’ll be good for 24 hours.

2 pounds potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
sea salt

Preheat oven to 400° F. Using a mandoline or vegetable peeler, shave potatoes into very thin slices. Lay slices onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Brush lightly with olive oil on both sides and sprinkle lightly with sea salt.

Bake at 400° F for 15 minutes or until potatoes start to turn golden on one side. Flip the slices and continue baking for another 7-10 minutes. Flip again and bake until potatoes are golden brown and crisp, another 5-10 minutes. Cool slightly and serve warm or cool completely and store in airtight container.

Makes 6 cups potato chips.
