I actually used Yukon Gold potatoes as I thought they would be a bit creamier. I seasoned the potatoes with some salt, added the chili powder and baked them in the oven the night before. I did leave out the butter, so many reviews seem to say leave it out or cut it back. I doubled the cheese/ranch dressing as I actually used 5 pounds of potatoes and many reviewers said, increase the amount. I added some garlic powder and minced onion. I only used half the cheese/ranch mixture to marinate the dish overnight and then to bake it the next day. I added some bacon bits before I baked. I agree with many reviewers, even though I salted the potatoes, used minced onion, bacon bits, and some garlic powder there is just something missing. You wouldn't think these would taste "flat" but they really did. Hmmm, maybe it needs a stronger cheese, but one that melts smoothly.
