Cheesy Bacon Potato Slices with Chipotle Ranch

I love that I saw these potato slices on a list of recipes that are an alternative to those unhealthy fried French Fries.  Yes, these potatoes are baked.  However, they are also covered in cheese and bacon.  So, let it be said here that while these are not fried, they aren't exactly Weight Watcher friendly either, which is why I love them.  :)  

Cheesy Bacon Potato Slices

serves 2-3

1 large Russet potato
3/4 c shredded cheese, cheddar, Monterey Jack, or Pepper Jack
4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
chopped parsley or green onions, optional

Chipotle Ranch
1 T ranch
3 T sour cream
1/4 t chipotle chili powder
1/8 t cayenne powder
1/8 t salt
1/8 t garlic powder

Preheat the oven to 375.

Slice the potato into 1/8 inch rounds.  Try to keep them as evenly sliced as possible.  Boil the potato slices for five minutes.  Drain well.

Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.  Layer the potato slices on it, so they are overlapping slightly.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle the cheese on top.  Sprinkle the bacon on top.

Bake for 12-14 minutes.

Combine all the Chipotle Ranch ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.

When the potatoes are finished, take them out, and top with fresh parsley or chopped green onions.  Serve with the Chipotle Ranch.
