Crispy Potato Wedges with Sour Cream and Chili Sauce

Potatoes get brown and crispy in the oven with just a fraction of the oil needed for traditional frying. Kids are sure to love the sour cream-based sauce that packs in all the classic baked potato toppings. This recipe is also a great way to stretch a serving of chili into a meal for four.
