HEALTHY POTATO CHIPS RECIPE

Apart from being so easy to make, what I love about these Spicy Potato Chips is that they are tastier than most potato chips you can find in fast foods; yet much healthier as they are oil-free and homemade! (Click on this link to get insight into the reasons why you should avoid consuming too much oil.)

Here are a few of the numerous health benefits you will get from these Spicy Potato Chips:

-Turmeric is antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Combining it with black pepper can increase the absorption of curcumin in turmeric by 2000%!!

Apple cider vinegar helps to regulate glucose level, increases absorption of nutrients, and improves digestive health.

-And most importantly, potatoes are rich in vitamin C, B6, copper, manganese and dietary fiber; and are a very efficient source of energy!

GLUTEN-FREE SPICY POTATO CHIPS

Potato chips/ french fries are normally naturally gluten-free, but if you are gluten allergic or intolerant, you want to be careful when buying pre-made potato chips as they may contain traces of gluten.

By making your Potato Chips yourself at home, you get the peace of mind of knowing exactly what’s in your food and where it was made!

VEGAN DIPS FOR POTATO CHIPS/ FRENCH FRIES

1- Ketchup

2- Hummus

3- Guacamole (2 avocados + some lemon juice + garlic clove mixed in a blender)

These are 3 of my favorite dips to marry with these Spicy Potato Chips. But I have to admit, I often go for ketchup as it is the easiest dip to reach for!

HOW TO COOK SPICY FRENCH FRIES?

Some recipe might tell you to cook your chips at 180.C in the oven. Or maybe 200.C… But I’m telling you to go all in and put your oven on maximum heat (287.C or 549.F).

This is what you HAVE to do to get perfectly baked crispy Spicy Potato Chips that will yet be super soft on the inside. Plus, it will also save you some time as your chips will take ONLY 15 MINUTES to cook!

Notes

*I use Sriracha sauce for this recipe but any spicy sauce can do the job. Use 1 tbsp for very slightly spicy potato chips, or 2 tbsps for more spicy potato chips. You can use up to 3 tbsps of spicy sauce if you want your chips to be really spicy. 
**I don't peel my potatoes as I don't see the necessity of doing so, but feel free to peel them if you don't feel comfortable with potato skin.
