Covered Crunchy Potato Chips

Rated as 4.33 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spread chips into a baking dish.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until chips are warm, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over chips and bake in the oven until cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Top chips with tomatoes, green onion, bacon, and sour cream.


  • 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 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!

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 ...
