- 1 -2 jalapeno, seeded, finely
- Heat oven to 450ºF. Line 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil; spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.
- Cut potatoes into thin wedges. In large bowl, combine potatoes, oil, chili powder and garlic powder; toss to coat. Place on sprayed foil-lined pan.
- Bake at 450ºF for 20 to 30 minutes or until tender and golden brown, turning once.

- Make It Special:.
- For a colorful presentation, garnish the dip with extra tomatoes and chiles in addition to the green onions.
- Recipe Variation:.
- Try baked potatoes topped with Cheddar Jalapeno Dip for a spicy change from the usual sour cream garnish. Or serve the potatoes as a tasty side dish without the dip.
Well this didn't hang about long!!
I cooked my wedges in a foil tray on the gas barbecue, turning them over every now and then to crisp up on all sides...and they came out beautifully.
I skipped the tomato in the dip and popped in a little extra jalapeno, as we like it hot..but it certainly wasn't overly spicy..just a nice depth of heat.
A fabulous combination that was greatly enjoyed with a nice cold beer on the side...perfect for a sultry summer evening.

We really enjoyed this recipe. We didn't find either the potatoes or the dip overly spicy, so if you like things hot, I would up the spices in both. We did enjoy it the way it was though. I didn't have a tomato, so had to leave that out. Next time I hope to use the tomato as well. I also like the idea of using the dip in place of sour cream on a baked potato! Thanks for sharing!
This is a wonderful recipe. The dip is so good. I didn't want to waste it so ate it with a spoon LOL I used 1 jalapeno and DH didn't find it spicy enough. So next time I'll use 2 jalapeno. Thanks Lazyme :) Made for Potluck tag game
