Spicy Cajun Potato Crisps
Potato itself is starchy but it gets you full with a little under 200 calories for a medium sized one (2 1/4'' to 3 1/4''). Also, one ounce of fresh potato = ~22 calories, whereas, one ounce of store bought low fat potato chips = ~150 calories! In addition, since it is homemade, you can make whatever flavors you want with no preservatives. Yay to homemade goodness!
Lemon Pepper Flavored Potato Crisps - After mixing the potato with olive oil, add dash of pepper, lemon zest and lemon juice. Mix until peppers are distributed onto each slice of potato.
For the Spicy Cajun Flavored Potato Crisps (picture at top of the post), add olive oil, cajun powder and chili powder.
For Salt and Vinegar Flavored Potato Crisps, soak potato slices in white distilled vinegar for a minute, and then drizzle and mix potato in olive oil. Lastly add dash of salt and mix.
Tips: Try not to add extra salt to mixes and powders that may already contain salt. Salt certainly helps dehydrate the potato crisps but it will also make it super salty.
