Baked sweet potato chips

Do you ever just want something crunchy? Well, I often crave something like chips or crackers. I decided to take the idea of sweet potato fries and turn them into baked chips. It is SUPER easy, as you know that cooking is not necessarily my forte, and very delicious!

As with everything I make, they are also incredibly versatile, and easily catered to your personal tastes.

Set your oven to 400 degrees and let it warm while you prep.

1. Peel your sweet potato. You can do this with a knife, however a peeler will always be a safer option.

2. Slice up into rounds. You should try to get them the same thickness, so they’ll cook evenly. A mandalin would be the best tool for this. I on the other hand don’t have one. I use a sharp knife, and slice from the front of the blade to the back in a slow rocking motion. This gives me the most even slices.

Try to keep your slices even for better baking results

4. Place your slices on the sheet and make sure both sides are well coated in the oil.

5. Now the fun part: put any seasonings you like. My mix is vegetable seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper. Some other options: red pepper flakes, cinnamon and sugar, etc.

Coat your slices in olive oil and seasonings

6. Place in the oven to bake, but check back in about 10-15 minutes. Flip them and if any have already crisped up, take them off and stick the rest back in.

Because I am not so good at cutting them even, I remove the crispy ones and continue cooking the thicker ones

And finally, after about 30 minutes you’ll have a big pile of delicious baked chips!

Crisp them to your liking

While these chips are delicious all on their own, I am a dipper!

Some suggestions:

  • Hummus, such as Tribe Forty Spice or any brand’s spinach and artichoke
  • Dijon or yellow mustard
  • Dressing such as Goddess, homemade creamy balsamic or Greek.
  • Peanut butter or maple syrup (maybe, if you do cinnamon and sugar?)
