Covered Crunchy Potato Chips

Recipe by  

"We were supposed to go a local pub that serves their homemade house chips loaded with the works - melted cheese, sour cream, bacon, etc. Everything you should only have once in a great while. As things worked out we weren't able to go out. Since I was still craving that sinful appetizer and my homemade chips aren't always scrumptious, it dawned on me why not use store-bought kettle-cooked chips and top them! This was the perfect way to indulge in my loaded chip craving."

  • Cook's Note:
  • This isn't a recipe in the purist form as it uses store bought potato chips and nothing is really cooked but for potato chip lovers it is a quick and easy appetizer. Any flavor chips could be used and any favorite toppings could be subbed or added.

What a great idea! My kids loved these! I used the packages of Oscar Myer cooked bacon chips and didn't use tomato (my kids won't eat tomatoes). Will make again!!!

AWESOME! I used a whole bag of kettle cooked sea salt and cracked pepper chips, so I didn't measure any of the other ingredients, but I did use them all, including some shredded mozzarella that I had to use up, and aside from the sour cream b/c I served these w/ Semigourmet's personal recipe for 'buttermilk ranch', which was fantastic w/ these. We literally licked the plate clean, lol. We already can't wait to make these again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

What a great idea using kettle cooked potato chips instead of tortilla chips. Great flavor, simple, versatile and easy to make. This went over big with guests. Thank you Cat Hill!
