Updated Sep 20, 2016

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb small (two-bite) Yukon gold potatoes, halved
  • 4 teaspoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons ranch dip mix (from 1-oz package)
  • 1 jalapeño chile, seeded, finely chopped
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 2 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Add cut potatoes to medium bowl. Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with ranch dip mix. Add jalapeño chile; stir until evenly coated. Place equal amount of mixture on center of each sheet of foil. Evenly sprinkle with bacon.
  • 3
    Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 4
    Place packs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 12 minutes. Rotate packs 1/2 turn; cook 12 to 14 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender. Remove packs from grill, cut large X across top of each pack. Carefully fold back foil, and sprinkle potatoes with cheese. If desired, garnish with sliced jalapeño chile.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Regular Yukon gold potatoes can be substituted for the small potatoes in this recipe. Cut them into 3/4-inch chunks.
  • tip 2
    To make in oven, place packs on cookie sheet. Bake at 375°F 40 to 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
