Spicy Sweet Potato Chips

 Have you ever tried to just eat one potato chip?  Well, I have never been successful at doing that because I love a good crunchy and salty snack.  I tried to make some "healthier" chips by substituting sweet potatoes for regular white potatoes. Unfortunately they fell shy of being truly healthy when I couldn't get my oven to cooperate with me so I could successfully bake them crispy the way I like.  Yes.. I did finally decide to take the plunge and deep fry them. Okay... they were a little healthy and a little guilty... but they still were fantastic. 

4 sweet potatoes skinned and thinly sliced
1 tsp of cumin powder
red chili powder to taste
1/4 tsp of turmeric powder
lots of black pepper
salt to taste (after frying)
oil for frying

Note: You will require the use of a mandolin slicer to give you thin even slices.  

Slice and marinate the sweet potato slices with the spices. Heat canola oil to 350-375 degrees and deep fry until golden brown and crispy (2-4 minutes).  Drain on a paper towel and sprinkle sea salt while hot and serve. Enjoy
