Homemade Barbecue Sweet Potato Chips

"Use Chip-Tastic to make these homemade barbecue sweet potato chips. The best part is you know exactly what ingredients and spices you use and there’s not frying in hot, messy, fattening oil."


Homemade Barbecue Spice:

2 tablespoon smoked paprika

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger powder

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

MIX together all of the spices. This recipe is for more than you need to season your chips, but this barbecue spice will keep for 6 months in your cabinet.

TASTY TIP: Add the left over barbecue spice to some sour cream, throw in some fresh chives and you have a quick, homemade dip for your chips.

SLICE your sweet potatoes with the Slice-o-Matic™ Food Slicer included with your Chip-Tastic. Soak sweet potatoes in cold water for 3–5 minutes. This step is optional, but it releases the starch and therefore some calories from the potato as well.

LAY out sweet potato slices on paper towels and pat dry.

SPRINKLE sweet potato slices with your homemade barbecue spice.

GENTLY fold and load the Chip-Tastic with your seasoned sweet potato slices.

PLACE the Chip-Tastic in the microwave and cook for about 3-5 minutes. Microwaves vary greatly so the best way to know when your chips are done is by sight. Also if your slices are really thick, you may need to cook them longer. The sweet potatoes should just start to look a little browned but of course not burned. If your sweet potatoes are not ready add 30 seconds at a time. When done, remove them from the microwave and let them cool and crisp up for 1–2 minutes.


Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips

Use potato of choice and follow the potato preparation above.

  • Homemade Sour Cream & Onion Spice:
  • 1 tablespoon powdered buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese

MIX and sprinkle on the potatoes before loading them onto the Chip-Tastic. Microwave for about 3–5 minutes. Cool and crisp for several minutes. Enjoy.
