In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 350°. Place chips, flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper and baking powder in a food processor; pulse until ground. Transfer to a shallow dish.

Test Kitchen tips :
If you're a dunker, try serving this with sweet-and-sour sauce.
To reuse frying oil, cool and strain it to remove any food particles. Store, covered, in the refrigerator.
Fry in small batches to maintain consistent oil temperature.
