7 Ways to Make DIY Chips for Dipping
Homemade chips are super easy to make and incredibly delicious. Here, seven excellent do-it-yourself chip recipes.
1. Baked Naan Chips
These oven-baked naan chips are similar in texture to pita chips and are the perfect way to scoop up cucumber-yogurt sauce, mango chutney or hummus.
2. Spiced Plantain Chips
To get perfectly thin plantain slices, use a meat slicer or mandoline.
3. Potato Chips with Nori Salt
Homemade nori salt gives these crispers a great umami flavor.
4. Baked Sweet Potato Chips
These addictive homemade chips are easy to make.
5. Crispy Zucchini Chips
Peggy Knickerbocker loves these chips, a favorite recipe from the Rose Pistola Cookbook, which she co-wrote with San Francisco chef Reed Hearon.
6. “Terra” Chips
"If there's poker, you have to have chips," says Terra co-owner Lissa Doumani about these crispy fried vegetable chips that her husband, Hiro Sone, made for the poker party. The name is a play on that of the couple's Napa Valley restaurant, Terra, as well as the Terra Chips that are available commercially nationwide.
7. Chile-Cheese Yucca Chips
Yucca, sometimes called cassava, is a starchy root that grows in very warm climates and makes super-crunchy chips. To remove the tough outer skin, use a sharp, heavy knife rather than a peeler.
