What’s for Dinner: Semi-Homemade Seasoned Chips

Life has been hectic, to say the least, lately.

Anyhow, the night before a family party at our house at the end of August [a week and some change ago], I experimented with a semi-homemade seasoned chips at home. You know, because I didn’t have enough on my plate already.

It’s semi-homemade because I took store-bought potato chips and made it my own by seasoning it with my seasonings. I had seen this combination online somewhere a few weeks prior, and I had immediately bookmarked it to try.

What I did was:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line your baking sheet with a foil sheet.
  2. Spread [store-bought] chips on the lined baking tray.
  3. Put in the oven to heat for about 3-5 minutes. Just enough to warm them up.
  4. Meanwhile combine: 2 teaspoons each of chili powder and paprika, 1 teaspoon of ground mustard powder, cumin, garlic powder, and onion powder, and 1/2 a teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
  5. Immediately after taking the chips out of the oven, sprinkle your  chips with the seasonings you just combined.
  6. Serve warm when possible!
It ended up being a perfect snack for our open-house style party too. The result is a smoky and delicious snack and definitely a must-try. So easy, and a great semi-homemade technique for sure! So good that I ended up making it two times over after making two large batches to begin with for the party!
The seasoning combination should be perfect for a large bag of plain potato chips, so you can adjust accordingly to how much you are using.
