  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • Salt
  • 5-6 cups of vegetable oil
  • Buffalo Ranch:
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp buttermilk
  • 1 Tbsp buffalo sauce winger sauce
  • 1 lg garlic clove
  • 1 Tbsp dill weed
  • Salt
  • Fresh cracked black pepper


  1. Wash baking potatoes well.
  2. Using a mandoline slicer, slice potatoes on the thinnest setting. Don't go too fast so that you get full potato slices. (Also, be very careful and watch your hands because the mandoline is sharp.)
  3. In a deep cooking pan (or in a fryer) start preheating oil to 350 degrees over medium to medium-high heat. Prepare a wire rack for cooked chips and cover it with a sheet of paper towel to soak up excess oil.
  4. Transfer potato slices into a large mixing bowl, be gentle so they don't break. Fill the bowl with cold water. Gently stir the potato slices and drain off the cloudy water. Fill the bowl with cold water again, stir the potato slices and drain off the water. Repeat the rinse one more time. (Rinsing potatoes gets rid of excess starch.)
  5. Make sure to dry potato slices before adding them in the hot oil. To dry the potato slices: lay them between two paper towels in one single layer and pat dry.
  6. Fry dry potato slices until golden brown. Take them out with a metal clotted spatula onto the prepared wire rack. Sprinkle some salt on the chips.
  7. Repeat with remaining potato slices.
  8. To make the Buffalo Ranch dipping sauce, simply whisk all ingredients together until smooth.
  9. **Note: this makes about the same amount as a big bag of chips but feel free to double the recipe if serving a big crowd.**
