For the Dip:

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 300F.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.

For the Bacon Salt:

Bake bacon at 350F until crispy. Crush in a mortar and pestle with the salt.
