Homemade Potato Chips

Millions of people around the country will getting ready for the Big Game on Sunday. Some will be thinking about point spreads, touchdowns, and if their team will win. But most of us will be thinking about food. Easy to eat food, finger food, snacks. And for me one of the best snacks is just a simple potato chip. Salty. Crunchy. These have three ingredients: russet potato, vegetable oil, and salt. They taste like potato chips. I know that might sound stupid, but it's true. Nowadays, too many commercially available chips taste nothing like potatoes. Some taste greasy and are loaded with artificial flavorings. I saw some chips the other day that said 'chili flavored.' Really? Do we need a chip to taste like a bowl of chili? Don't get me wrong, I like a good bowl of chili, but as a chip flavor...I'm not sure. So, if you're in the mood for a good chip that taste like a potato, try making some at home.
