Sweet Potato Crisps

Sweet Potato Crisps by Robyn Savoie

It's easy to make your own sweet potato chips at home. These are baked and you use a Cuisinart or mandolin to thinly slice. A little olive oil cooking spray with Kosher/Sea salt and viola! Sometimes I step it up a notch by lightly sprinkling with ground chipotle.
