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.
- 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)
- Heat air fryer to 360 for 5 minutes while you slice the potatoes.
- Place potatoes in a large bowl, spray with avocado oil spray, salt and pepper.
- Place in air fryer, slightly overlapping. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to do in two batches.
- 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.
- Let cool.
- 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.
- The dip will thicken up as it cools slightly. It’s delicious both warm from the skillet and at room temperature.
