Baked Sweet Potato Chips

I am always on the lookout for new sweet potato recipes. Andrew and I usually have sweet potatoes at least once a week. Whether they are mashedbakedroasted or thrown into chili, they are definitely one of my favorites! These guilt free baked potato chips are one of my favorite ways to enjoy sweet potatoes and only take about 20 minutes to make. You do want to watch the potatoes very carefully in the last minutes of baking to make sure they don’t burn. If some of the chips are browning faster than others, just remove them from the baking sheet and return the rest to the oven to finish baking. I accidentally burned a few myself, but they still tasted pretty darn good! ;)


Baked Sweet Potato Chips

Yield: 10 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 24 minutes

Ingredients:

5 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced thin (about ⅛ inch thick)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon cumin powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/4 cup canola oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Combine all seasonings with oil in a large bowl. Add sliced sweet potatoes tossing to coat the potatoes well.
Divide sweet potatoes between 2 rimmed baking sheets, arranging them in a single layer.
Bake one baking sheet at a time, flipping the sweet potatoes once, until centers are soft and edges are crisp, 22 to 24 minutes. Sprinkle with additional salt if desired and serve.

Recipe Notes:
Watch the potatoes carefully in the last minutes of baking to make sure they don’t burn.
Depending on your oven, you may need to cut baking time short or add a few more minutes to desired crispness.
The baking times are approximate; it depends on how thick you cut the wedges or rounds of sweet potatoes. Try to cut them evenly so they all cook at about the same rate. For best results bake only one sheet at a time.
