Sweet Potato Chips Recipe

Austin Here!

I have been enjoying my tastebuds recently. I have been getting into spicy foods and enjoying it! Thoroughly! I have using tapatio, spicing my foods differently and coming up with spicy recipes to enjoy in the kitchen! Here is one of the recipes that i have been LOVING recently!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound sweet potatoes
  • 1.5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Cayenne Pepper Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Wholly Guac Ranch Mini

Method

Preheat oven to 425°.

Cut 3/4 pound sweet potatoes into 1/4-inch-thick slices; set aside. I use a Food Processor because it makes the slices even and thin-ish which I like better! 

Combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons Cayenne powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin. I add the spices into a bag first, then I add the oil and I mix. If Cayenne is too hot for you, you can swap out chili powder which tends to be more mild in spice.

Add sweet potatoes to the bag; toss gently to coat.

Cover a lightly oiled Aluminum Foil (or parchment paper) covered rectangular cake tin with a single layer of potatoes; roast, turning once, until golden and tender (about 20-25 minutes or until browned to your personal taste). Serve with Wholly Guacamole Ranch Mini cup. Enjoy!

GREAT choice for diabetics! To make this a full meal, pair this recipe with a serving of potatoes or brown rice, or add more vegetables to your meal.

8 servings

Ingredients:

1 3-lb package of Lean ground turkey*
5 cups grated zucchini (we used regular green zucchinis, but crooked neck squash would also work)

Directions: 

Grate the zucchini and carrot, rinse thoroughly and then press out all the water. Combine zucchini, grated carrot, turkey and seasonings, mix thoroughly.

Prepare baking pan with at least 1-inch walls, spray with olive oil. Divide meat mixture into 8 one-cup balls, place on a pan with at least 2-3 inches in between.

Cook:

375 degrees, for about 30-35minute, until no longer pink inside.  Drain off the liquids.


Nutrition Information: About 300 calories per individual meatloaf.

Some notes: We use ground turkey because the fat content is much lower than other ground meats. Notice that there is no added fats or fillers. If you choose to add carbohydrates such as crackers or oatmeal, it will change the consistency of the meatloaf, it will be moister, but the calorie and carbohydrate content will be much higher.

*Note – you can use Extra Lean, but it would be much drier; if you use the regular ground turkey blend the fat content would be higher, thus higher calories.
