This recipe received our Test Kitchens' highest rating. Use a mandoline to cut the potato for the best results; hand-cutting is less likely to produce sufficiently thin and uniform slices. If you have any leftover chips, store them in an airtight container for up to a week. You'll need to bake them for two minutes at 450° to recrisp before eating.

Yield:

6 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup chips and about 2 tablespoons dip)
