Home-made sweet potato chips

I am crazy for sweet potato chips but most of the commercial brands are saturated with fat and drenched with salt. Enter raw, sliced sweet potato chips from food purveyors like Mariano’s or Trader Joe’s. You can make your own healthy versions of this snack.

Spread the chips on a baking tray covered with parchment paper. Add a little olive oil for interest. One drop on each chip or spritz the chips with a spray bottle. Sea salt and other seasonings such as cayenne pepper, garlic powder, paprika or pepper are optional.

One recipe recommends 2 hours at 250 degrees, but I just did a batch at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Turn the chips halfway through the baking time.

Some of the recipes talk about using a mandoline or a very long sharp knife to slice the sweet potato chips at home. My fingers will continue to feel safer with the store bought raw slices, thank you very much. Pass the salsa!
