Kicked Up Potato Chips

Marsha Gardner


I love potato chips but the brand I eat doesn't always have the variety I am craving, so I decided to try to make my own. Surprise,it works and so versatile you can make any flavor or combination of flavors your little heart desires.

  • 1 large
    bag kettle-cooked potato chips
  • 1/2 c
    parmigiano-reggiano, grated very fine
  • 1/4 tsp
    paprika, sweet mild
  • 1/2 tsp
    cayenne pepper

How to Make Kicked Up Potato Chips


  1. To make, spread potato chips on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees until oil appears, 6 to 7 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, paprika, and cayenne pepper.
    Remove chips from oven, and immediately sprinkle with cheese mixture. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  3. If paprika, Parmesan and cayenne isn't your thing, I encourage you to select a spice that you like and make your own mixture to top the chips. Here are some ideas for spices, cheese and other mix-ins that you can consider to give these chips a different spin.

    Old Bay
    Chili Powder
    Garlic Powder
    Onion Powder
    BBQ Rub
    Chinese Five Spice
    Fajita Seasoning

    Sharp Cheddar
    Monterrey Jack

    Thinly Shaved Parsley or other herbs
