For the Dip:
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and season with salt, pepper and red pepper to taste. Serve with homemade potato chips (or a nice store-bought brand) alongside for dipping.
For the Homemade Potato Chips:
Slice potatoes thin using a mandolin or food processor.
Rinse well with cold water in a colander and drain. Dry slices well with clean towels.
Fill a Dutch oven or large, heavy saucepan with 2-3 inches of oil. Heat oil to 300°F.Fry potato slices in several batches (add them one at a time so that they don't stick together) until golden brown. Remove and dry on paper towels.
Season potato chips with bacon salt.
