Lays came out with a sriracha chip and my sister has been going crazy looking for them. I know the reviews for this chip are pretty meh but she is obsessed. She cleared out the last store she found it in but hasn't been able to find it again. So im going to see if I can make it. The contestant who submitted the idea says that its only made with salt and sriracha sauce. I doubt Lays just dips it in sriracha sauce. and I've heard it compared to a BBQ chip so im assuming the process might be similar.
How would I go about reproducing this chip?
Im thinking I should dehydrate some sriracha sauce by placing some thinly spread sriracha sauce on a Silplat and placing it int he oven at the lowest possible temperature. After cooling, pound it into a powder in a mortar and pestle. Fry the potato slices as usual and then sprinkle with the dehydrated sriracha and salt. Of course this is just speculation. Do you have any better ideas? Its even harder for me that I have no idea how it tastes.
