Potato chips are the #1 snack food all over the globe!!! What really amazed me about making my own potato chips was how crispy and crunchy they were right out of the microwave! Still scratching my head on that one. The first time I made these I ate the whole bowl of potato chips by myself in one sitting. So beware…they are addicting. :-)

Step 1: You'll Need:

1. 2-3 potatoes - middle size (for about 4 plates to fit)

2. Olive oil (coconut oil, or whatever oil you prefer)

3. Seasonings (be creative and try all sorts of different seasonings!)


Step 2:

1. Peel potatoes

2. Slice potatoes, depending on size (very thin!)

3. Put the slices in a small bowl and drizzle with some olive oil

4. Arrange potato slices in a single layer on plate

5. Sprinkle on some salt to taste (use if you want all sorts of different seasonings as well)

6. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes

7. Turn the slices over (careful…they’re HOT!) and Microwave again for another 3-4 minutes (until they start to brown and get crispy on the edges)

8. Remove from microwave and allow to cool completely. (They will continue to crisp up as they cool).

9. Repeat process for as many potatoes as you like!

10. Enjoy

    To whoever: I dropped my phone and accidentally flagged this as incomplete. It is not and I don't know how to retract the flag.

    I suppose this process would work for other chips as well, like beet?

    While I've not yet tried it, but it seems like you could go around the tedious turning over part by using two flat objects or let's say baking sheet to turn them over all at once. Unless they stick heavily?

    Hmmm beet...I don't know how tasty it would be....as good as this?, I don't think so. Good advice about turning slices over but as you guess some of them get stick heavily. Thank you.

    Hey guys, I'll try making these today and will let you know about the pan flipping. I always line my pans with parchment paper, so they shouldn't stick. I always bake my potato wedges in lieu of fries, and always use the two-cookie sheet flip method. I'll let y'all know if it works. I would think that beets would be too moist to work well (I've never even heard of beet chips!), but I am definitely picking up a couple of sweet potatoes to try this on. I am crazy about sweet potato chips and would be awesome if these turned out great as these chips should. Yummo! Update to follow... P.S. Ermanos- you are a cutie! (Cougar claws being retracted... bad reader...)

    Windy, how did it go? Any tips?

    Chips from beet and other vegetables of similar composition are a matter of taste really, you season them as you like and they're just as crunchy and all if made properly. They can add a little fanciness as well or work in combos potato ones doesn't!

    Hey there! So, I seriously burned my first batch of chips! I guess I have a really strong microwave, so I'm still trying to perfect the "Ermanos Chip"- one that doesn't come out brown. They are still really good and truly easy to make (and I don't have to own a fryer, which pleases me to no end), but they keep getting really brown on me. Anyway, I'll work with temps on my end. I DID try a sweet potato (peeled, sliced thinly)- IT WAS REALLY GOOD! I agree with you on different veggies. FLIPPING- parchment paper is not good in the microwave BUT spraying my plate with non-stick spray worked wonders! NOTE: the potatoes do cook differently (a little slower) when using non-stick spray, but they don't stick to flip! Re-spray between batches. EASY FLIPPING, no sticking. Not sure I'm ready to try beet chips, but I would love to know how they turn out if you are adventurous. Thanks for the follow up and thanks again, Ermanos, for a great Instructable!

    AWESOME FEEDBACK! Thanks for taking the time to come back and post your feedback, Sara. Now I know I won't be wasting my time. I didn't think I would be, but I also run in to a lot of duds, being a consummate "tester". Addictions I can handle. Disappointments, not so well. So, thanks!
