Who doesn't love potato chips? Whether eaten right out of the bag, dunked into a delicious dip, or matched up with the perfect beer, potato chips have always been one of our favorite guilty pleasures. But have you ever thought about cooking with potato chips?

7 Things You Didn't Know You Could Make with Potato Chips
