Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet potato chips are one of my favorite things to make at home. I love the crispness and the freshness of homemade chips. Not only that, but I love adding my own seasonings and spices to make them just the way my family likes them. They are versatile and fun and the perfect alternative to store-bought chips.

How to Make Sweet Potato Chips

  • Peel your sweet potatoes and rinse them under water.
  • Slice your sweet potatoes with a mandolin on the thinnest setting. 
  • Heat your deep fryer pan to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and make sure it has reached its temperature first.
  • Work in small batches, make sure not to overcrowd your deep fryer. Put a few slices in the fryer and turn each individual slice over with a fork after 30-45 seconds.
  • Let it fry for another 30-45 seconds (1-1 ½ minutes total) and put in a large bowl with paper towels, to soak up the oil.
  • Once most of the oil is gone, sprinkle your seasoning over the potatoes, to taste.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • We highly recommend that you use a mandolin to cut your sweet potatoes all the same size and thin enough. If you do not have a mandolin you want to cut these as thin as possible and all the same size. 
  • You want to try and maintain your deep fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. A probe thermometer can help you maintain the temperature to make sure your fries don’t cook too hot.

Storage

You will want to store your chips at room temperature in an airtight container or plastic bag for up to 3 days. 

Do you have to peel your sweet potatoes?

I prefer to peel my sweet potatoes when making chips, but you don’t have to. You can leave the skins on to get some extra fiber and nutrients and for a little healthier of a chip. This will not change the crispiness of the chip. 

Do you need to soak your sweet potatoes prior to cooking?

You do not need to soak your sweet potatoes prior to making your sweet potato chips. You just want to rinse them under the water 1 to 2 times. Be sure to dry them completely before frying.

Why are my chips soggy?

If you have soggy sweet potato chips you want to make sure that you dry your sweet potatoes completely before frying. This helps make them become crispier. 

If your potatoes are still soggy, you want to make sure that your oil is hot enough at the start of each batch.

Are Sweet Potato Chips Healthy for you?

While sweet potato chips are healthier than regular potato chips, we have to remember that these are still deep-fried. So you want to consume them in moderation.
