  • 1 ½ cups sweet potatoes - 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons organic brown sugar light or dark can be used
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder - Emeril's Southwest Essence is excellent too.
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Thinly slice sweet potatoes.
  • Toss in a bowl with the oil so that each sweet potato slice is lightly coated. You can use your hands if you like.
  • Mix the brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, and salt in a small bowl.
  • If any water has come out of the sweet potatoes while they were sitting then you can drain that off. 
  • Sprinkle the seasoning mix over the sweet potatoes and toss so that each slice has seasoning on it. They are lightly coated as in the photo above.
  • Lay sweet potatoes in a single layer in the air fryer touching or overlapping a tiny bit. If you have a stirring arm in your air fryer that has to be removed.
  • Air Fry at 180°C (356°F) for 6 to 9 minutes at depending on how thin your slices are. Mine was 9 minutes. Start to watch and don't burn. I actually have a T-Fal actifry and it is always set at 180°C and I can't change it. So 180°C it is (356°F :)
  • Shake the basket halfway through or lightly stir to get them off the bottom of the air fryer bottom.
  • When done remove chips to a cooling rack and let them cool. They will get crispier as they cool.
  • Done and eat or store in an airtight container.
