Pj's Potato Skins

PJ Humble


Many different preference's with potato skins and this is my family's. We usually use sour cream but recently I went to Chili's restaurant and had their bacon, ranch, chicken quesadillas and they served it with their chipotle sauce...AMAZING! My husband got the potato skins and this sauce was amazing with those as well! Still trying to find the right recipe for the sauce but not much luck yet, you can use spicy ranch, that's in the dressing isle at the grocery store. If you have the recipe for Chipotle sauce like Chili's, PLEASE share with me!
