Sweet Potato Chips

Course: Appetizers

Cuisine: Caribbean


  • 1 lb sweet potatoes
  • salt to taste optional
  • oil for frying


  • Wash and peel the sweet potato. Wash again and dry with paper towels.
  • Note: When I peeled the sweet potato it exuded a bit of “milk” at the head so I had to wash it again.
  • Slice on the thinnest setting on a mandolin (1/32″)
  • Wash the chips with water and dry. Then place in a pot with enough oil to cover the chips.
  • On a very low fire fry the sweet potato chips for about 30 mins or until golden.
  • The chips are done when they float to the surface.
  • Drain on paper towels and add optional salt to taste.
