Jamie says: A week ago, Kathryn was working on an article for the Women’s Health Web site and she found a recipe for sweet potato chips. When I was trying to decide what I could make as a side to go with my lunch, I remembered her find. So, I tried the sweet potato recipe out. They were a hit! Kathryn and her friend Leigh Ann were raving about them.
I pretty much followed the recipe online except for a few small modifications. To make these chips, I heated the oven to 375 degrees Farenheit. I sliced a washed sweet potato (I left the skin on) into thin slices. I then sprayed a baking sheet with PAM cooking spray, added the sweet potato slices, and sprayed the slices with more PAM. I baked them for 7 minutes and then rotated the pan and continued baking for another 28 minutes. During the cook time, I mixed 1 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp chili powder, and 1/2 tsp salt. When the sweet potatoes were done cooking, I tossed them in the seasoning by using a Tupperware container with a lid. http://recipes.womenshealthmag.com/Recipe/spiced-sweet-potato-chips.aspx
