Spicy Sweet Potato Chips
I LOVE potato chips. Potato chips DON'T love me--meaning once I rip open a bag of those salty, crispy snacks--I just can't stop eating them. Not to mention the fact they are so unhealthy!
Why buy bags of junky, greasy chips when you can make your own in no time at all? This recipe for Spicy Sweet Potato Chips ( you make them from sweet potatoes) is from Yummly.com. I really love that website!
The beauty of these chips? They are so much tastier than any bag of chips you could possibly buy, they are baked not fried, and you know every single ingredient in them because YOU made them!
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
3 sweet potato (peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices)
1 Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
2 Stir together olive oil, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Brush the sweet potato slices with the maple mixture and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
3 Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes, then turn the potato slices over, brush with any remaining maple mixture, and continue baking until tender in the middle, and crispy on the edges, about 7 minutes more.
Munch away because these are Cynfully Good............
