Potato Chips with Jalapeno Ranch Dip

Potato Chips with Jalapeno Ranch Dip

These potato chips with jalapeno ranch dip are going to be the hit at your next get together.

Or you can make them for yourself and eat them alone like I did!  No judgment. 😁

Before I became a widow I was a football widow.

If you have a spouse, significant other or partner who loves football as much as my husband did, you know what I mean.  That meant on Monday nights, Thursday nights and all day Sunday my husband watched football.  I didn’t mind a bit!  Because I was all about the football snacks!  I really liked these corn dogs.

How do you make potato chips in an air fryer?

I read lots of recipes yesterday about how to go about making potato chips in the air fryer, and nearly all of them said I needed to slice the potatoes, boil them for 15 minutes, pat dry, spray with avocado oil spray, salt and fry.  Whew.  No thanks!

You don’t need a mandolin to slice the potatoes, just a good sharp knife.  

I used Alouette cheese everything but the bagel cheese, but you can use any flavor you like.  Garlic and herb would be great!

Dak’s Spices makes a ranch seasoning that is so good.  I have no affiliation with this company other than they have given me a 10% discount (Bizzy10) if you want to check out their products.  All of their products are salt free, but I do add a bit of salt to them.

Total Time:

These homemade potato chips are so easy to make in your air fryer. I skip the boiling step that most recipes called for, but they are still super crunchy! Perfect for Game Day!


  • 10 ounces potatoes, sliced thin (about two medium potatoes)
  • avocado oil spray
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon light butter
  • 1 teaspoon flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cashew milk (any milk is fine!)
  • 3 tablespoons Alouette cheese (I used everything but the bagel, but any flavor works!)
  • 1 tablespoon grated jalapeno pepper (or more to taste!)
  • 1 tablespoon ranch dressing powder (I used Dak’s)


  1. Heat air fryer to 360 for 5 minutes while you slice the potatoes.
  2. Place potatoes in a large bowl, spray with avocado oil spray, salt and pepper.
  3. Place in air fryer, slightly overlapping. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to do in two batches.
  4. Bake at 360 for 10 minutes. This cooks the chips. Bump up the temperature to 400 and bake an additional 6-9 minutes, checking at the 6 minute mark to see if some are ready to be pulled out.
  5. Let cool.
  6. To make the sauce: melt the butter in a skillet. Add the flour and cook for one minute. Slowly add in the milk. Add the cheese, jalapeno and ranch seasoning and cook over medium low heat until nice and thick.
  7. The dip will thicken up as it cools slightly. It’s delicious both warm from the skillet and at room temperature.
