Last of the Red Hot Mamas' Cookies

We just got totally carried away by the package with "MISS VICKIE'S® Jalapeno Flavored Potato Chips" on the front, with a little cameo of real jalapenos featured on the bag.

They are hotter than sin. I suspect that habeneros are used to make the jalapeno flavoring.

What do you do with a huge bag of potato chips that you can't eat? Surely not waste them in all their heated deliciousness.

4 cups MISS VICKIE'S® Jalapeno Flavored Potato Chips
Two sticks of butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. Pure Vanilla Flavoring
2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup nuts
Crush potato chips in food processor until coarsely chopped. Remove chips and cream butter and sugar in the food processor with the vanilla. Transfer to a medium mixing bowl and add flour, nuts and crushed potato chips to the butter and sugar mixture.
Drop by generous teaspoonfuls onto a baking sheet leaving room for expansion. Press and shape into
flattened rounds with a floured fork with all marks in one direction. (Don't make criss-crosses like for peanut butter cookies.)
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheet with a spatula -- they are crumbly and easily broken before they cool.
Red Hot Mamas' Cookies will warm you all the way down. Best with milk. Some of the fire remains despite all that butter and sugar. Bet you can't eat just one.


MISS VICKIE'S® Jalapeno Flavored Potato Chips are a Lay's Product. I bought mine, without encouragement.

  1. These sound really interesting.


  2. These sound good in a hot kinda

  3. What an interesting recipe. I have never seen these in a store here. Of course, I rarely buy chips. Bet my DH wouldn't touch then; he recently complained that the Pepper Jack cheese was too hot!


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
