Sweet potatoes are a popular tuber that has naturally sweet flavors when cooked. I love a good baked sweet potato right out of the oven, sliced open with a dollop of creamy butter and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Sweet Potatoes Chips are quite popular today and are sold in most groceries stores, but most often fried with many additives. I thought it would be a fun to bake our own and combine some of my favorite dried spices for a smoky sweet potato snack.
Smoky Baked Sweet Potato Chips are an easy treat that can be prepared in under 15 minutes and will have your family coming back for another batch. These chips are delicious served as a snack or on the side of a burger or sandwich. And for parties, these chips are perfect with an Amber Beer.
