Sweet Potatoes are loaded with Vitamin A, C and Beta Carotene and are naturally low in fat and high in fiber. Sweet Potatoes are not in the yam family nor are they related to regular potatoes. It’s a starchy, sweet tasting root vegetable that is highly diverse. It can be roasted, fried, mashed, baked, stuffed, wedged and so much more. The tops, or greens of the sweet potato can also be eaten simply sauté with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Instructions
  1. Wash sweet potatoes well, pat dry, and leave the skins on. Using a mandoline slicer or very sharp knife cut sweet potatoes into thin round circles. In a small bowl add white pepper, red pepper, salt and garlic and mix together until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Place a heavy duty pan over medium heat. Add one inch of oil to the pan and let it get hot. Once hot add in a few sliced sweet potatoes at a time, you will need to do this in batches. Let the potatoes heat up for 2-3 minutes then flip them over. Allow them to blister slightly on the tops (about another 3-4 minutes) and then remove the potatoes from the heat using a slotted spoon or spider skimmer. Place them onto a paper towel lined pan to drain off excess oils. Then sprinkle with a pinch or two of the cajun spice mixture. Continue the process until all of the potatoes are cooked. Use the remaining spice mixture to sprinkle about the chips and serve.
