Homemade potato chips are healthier than store-bought chips and easy to make. Also try sweet potato chips and taro chips.


  • 1 Potato, skin on (Gold Yukon or Red or other)
  • 1 Sweet Potato or Yam, skin on
  • 1 piece Taro Root (optional)
  • 1 Purple Potato
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt
  • Spices, optional (try garlic or onion powder, chili powder, or black pepper)


Try adding different spices to the chips before you bake them, just sprinkle on both sides of chips along with the salt (if using). Serve with a cool, creamy ranch dip...recipe link below.


Step 1.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Wash and dry potatoes and taro root (if using).
Step 2.
With a food processor, a very sharp knife, or a mandolin for cutting vegetables, slice the potatoes into as thin of slices as possible. Or a little thicker, about 1/8 inch thick if you like thick-cut potato chips.
Step 3.
Spread the slices on a cookie sheet and spray with a little oil. Add salt if using. Turn over and spray the other side of the slices. Add salt if using.
Step 4.
Put the slices in the oven and bake them for 15 to 20 minutes, turning them once halfway through baking. Chips should be slightly browned at edges and crisp but not burnt. Cool and enjoy!
