    I seem to have been buying a lot of junk food lately. Here's a bag of Kettle chips. I feel they are the best chips in the world, wouldn't you agree?

    I tried Pop Chips the other day, didn't really like them. I like Pringles, though, and they bring back so much nostalgia. Pringles in my heart, always.

    Pop Chips are ok. They're made of potato flakes, so they almost have a texture of rice cakes. But way crunchier. Only thing I don't like is that they're really expensive.

    Kettle Chips are just awesome. Sooo crunchy. And not too greasy. I can eat a whole bag like the one you're holding. icon_biggrin.gif

    Kettle is my choice too. Can't eat chips very often or I'd lose my abs. Here's a dip I make - easy as anything: Equal parts non-fat sour cream and non-fat mayo. Add Worcestershire sauce (Lee & Perrins or French's) to suit your own taste. This is deadly but good. Hungry for it now!

    Two locally made chips here in Detroit.

    This is my favorite of all time:

    And these are pretty good. They kind of have a burnt flavor.

    i find Pringles disturbing. i think they are just remnants, leftovers, droppings of potatoes, which are dried and ground into potato flakes and then pressed into those uniform shapes and fried solid. its F'd up but a great use of compost.

    Make your own.

    Take potato. Slice thinly. Toss with a little olive oil and salt and optional spices: fresh garlic and rosemary or just some garlic powder, whatever you like..

    Use largest glass pan that fits in microwave and rotates. layer potato slices (I just sort of toss them in there). Works best only 1/2 a potato at a time but I rarely have the patience. The fewer you make at a time the less they will stick together.

    Microwave on high for about 8 minutes (if whole large potato). then turn, resalt to taste, try to separate the slices if you can. Micro another 8 minutes and turn again, separating as possible. Micro about another 5-7 minutes but be careful towards end so as not to burn.

    If you don't burn them and they don't stick together too badly you've got a batch of the best potato chips you'll ever get. You can eat them hot or wait a few minutes for them to cool and crisp up even more so.

    I lied. I rarely will make sweet potato chips raw with a food dehydrator.

    It's a lot of effort to slice a raw potato up, dehydrate it for 8 hours, and then eat it in 3 minutes later. That said, do it once, you'll look at all those potatoes you eat in one sitting mindlessly from a bag you buy in the store in a new light. All those needless calories...

    Ya, well, that's basically what the microwave is doing is dehydrating them. They come out with a wonderful concentrated potato flavor. Sweet potatoes also work only not as well or I just don't have the technique down yet. They're tough to get crisp before they burn so I think it might just be timing.

    Slicing part is easy. Microwave goes pretty fast. Dehydrator would be annoying. The only pain is trying to separate them. I usually wind up with, well, I guess they wind up being more potato clumps than actual chips. Still, very tasty.

    Totally agree that about store bought chips. I rarely buy them--unless I'm out having a sandwhich--since I started making them on my own. You can't even compare the flavor and you know what you're eating.

    What do you use to slice them? I have tried a sharpened knife (one I sharpen myself) and the Slice-O-Matic (a gift from the folks...). The latter takes some practice to use...and then lots of cleanup.
