"To get them crisp but not burned, I used tongs and pulled the slices from the pans as they became crisp. Takes some watching! Love my V slicer!"

"These are really good. There's a fine line between soft and crisp, keep an eye on them, but either way they're delicious! Didn't make the dip so I can't vouch for it. I used a slicer to get slices of uniform thickness."

"Really good. Had a bit of dip leftover that I used with some fish. As others have said, just watch the thickness and monitor closely while cooking."

"The drizzle was too thick. I think it just made the chips burn too easily. Like another commenter's my chips were either burnt or still mushy. The dip was good."

"These were really good, but didn't use the dip. Served them for dinner w/ barbecued pork chops, salad and veggies. They didn't crisp up and you really need to keep an eye on them as 25 minutes could be a bit long or they'll start to burn. Will keep making them as they are easy, tasty and quick."

"The flavors in the chips and the dip were great. But, my chips would not crisp! The ones that were cripsy, honestly, were burnt. I will try this again, but with no salt on the potatoes until after they are cooked."

"Absolutely EXCELLENT! I didn't have taco mix so I just doubled the spices for the chips. I then sprinkled a little cayenne pepper on the dip for a little extra zip. I will for sure be making these again very soon!"

"Loved these chips! A few of mine got a little overcooked after baking at 400 for 25 minutes - so keep an eye on them; cutting them into a uniform thickness will help prevent this. I served these with homemade guacamole and they were delicious."
