Who doesn't love potato chips? As a salty snack with drinks or a textural crunch on your sandwich, chips are one of our all-time faves – and this recipe for homemade potato chips is making them even better. They’re just as crispy as the kind from a bag but have less fat and less sodium. Plus they're easy and inexpensive to make, so you can go nuts!

You can make these with either russet potatoes or sweet potatoes if you want a touch more flavor and loads more micronutrients. Russet potatoes are high in vitamin B6, potassium, copper, and vitamin C, with many of the nutrients residing in their earthy skins. Sweet potatoes, meanwhile, are high in vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, and pantothenic acid. Lower in carbs an ultra-rich in beta-carotene, they're a nutritious alternative for sure!

Make these party-ready by serving them alongside vegan ranch dip or goddess dip. The creamy dips will add even more flavor to this healthy snack!
