Currently, at Casa de Freckle Face there hasn’t been a whole lot of running going on. But, there has been a lot of something else: eating!
My parents came to stay for a week and all the healthy eating went out the window. The minions were being treated to biscuits and gravy, bacon, eggs, etc. Throw in the occasional donuts and late night ice cream and my parents left us each with an additional 10 pounds to get rid of.
Personally, I can’t stomach a lot of the stuff I just mentioned. So, I have to get creative with what I can substitute.
So, without further adieu: Super Tasty Zucchini Chips! Perfect for when your mama leaves homemade salsa & guacamole in your fridge.
You know you want some!
Step 1: Slice up 2 handsome zucchini very thin. The thinner the slice, the crunchier the chip.
Step 2: You have 2 options here. If you are awesome like me, you have a handy dandy olive oil spritzer-sprayer thing. Spray the cookie sheet and then line the slices from end to end. Then spray the tops.
If you don’t…
Plan B: Put all the zucchini slices in a Ziploc with a light douse of Olive Oil and shake it up. Then line those suckers up on the cookie sheet.
Step 3: Decide what kind of mood you are in and season accordingly. In the picture above I sprinkled the chips with garlic salt and seasoned pepper. I have also used garlic salt and parmesean, sea salt and red pepper flakes. The combos are endless.
Just know that you need salt. Otherwise, why are you making chips?
Once you have something that looks like this…
Put them in a 400 degree oven and bake them until you get the desired crunchiness. I like mine a little burnt. I’m a weirdo, but we already knew that. So that takes me about 40ish minutes.
When you are done, you have a tasty, salty, yummo snack without dying of a stomach ache. Or, at least I do.
Disclaimer: these do not taste like regular chips. Specifically Doritos. But, If you have gastrointestinal shenanigans like I do…give this a go.
I ate mine with guacamole and a margarita. They also go good with hummus.
What are you going to eat yours with?
