It's hard to improve on this Game Day classic, but we did, by swapping in kettle chips and melted Gouda and blue cheese.


  • 1 bag (8 ounces) kettle potato chips, such as Cape Cod

  • 2 ounces cream cheese

  • ½ cup whole milk

  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Gouda (5 ounces)

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce, such as Frank's

  • 1 thinly sliced jalapeno (¼ cup)

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives (from 1 bunch)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment; spread chips out in a single layer. In a small saucepan, whisk together cream cheese and milk over medium heat until combined, 2 minutes. Whisk in blue cheese and 1/2 cup Gouda. Bring to a boil and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, 5 minutes. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and hot sauce.

  2. Drizzle cheese sauce evenly over chips, then sprinkle with remaining 1 cup Gouda. Bake until bubbly and crisp at edges, 5 to 7 minutes. Top with jalapeno, sour cream, and chives; serve.
