The saying is true, bacon makes everything better, but bacon and potatoes? That’s the best combination of all! And because you have lettuce and tomato, you are technically getting your veggies in there too, right??

We have to talk about the dipping sauce for this yummy appetizer! I used a basic ranch dressing mix, combined mayonnaise and sour cream and kicked the entire thing up with chipotle powder! If you don’t like spicy food, halve the amount of powder. Or you can omit it all together if you really wanted to.Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Potato Skins
