Okay, these were amazing. Cheesy and oh. so. delicious. I will definitely be making these again, and probably again.

Cheesy Bacon Oven Chips
3 medium potatoes, sliced evenly 1/8" thick {I used red potatoes, and…yes!}
cooking spray
3/4 C. shredded colby jack or cheddar cheese
salt & pepper to taste
2 T. crumbled bacon (about 2 slices) {I used real bacon bits}
chopped parsley or chives, for garnish

Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce
1 T. ranch dressing
3 T. sour cream
1/4 t. chipotle chili powder
1/8 t. cayenne (adjust more or less depending on how spicy you want)
1/8 t. salt
1/8 t. garlic powder

For the Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce: place all ingredients in a small bowl, and stir to combine. Refrigerate to allow flavors to meld together.

For the chips: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Bring sliced potatoes to a boil in cold, salted water to cover for 5 minutes. Carefully drain, and transfer slices to a paper-towel lined countertop or cutting board. Pat to dry.
Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray, and lay out potato slices so they are overlapping on it. Spray lightly with additional cooking spray, then sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste. Sprinkle evenly with shredded cheese & bacon.
Bake 12-14 minutes in preheated oven until cheese is melted & bubbly. Serve with chipotle ranch sauce.
