Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Chips

These addictively delicious, chewy chips provide a nutritious dose of
carotenoids--vegetable pigments believed to have health-promoting properties.
To make sure your chips are cut thinly and evenly, use a vegetable slicer.

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients:

3 large sweet potatoes (1 1/2 pounds), peeled and very thinly sliced
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt

Pat the potato slices between paper towels to dry, then arrange in a single
layer on several sheets of paper towel. Let stand 10 minutes, then place slices
in a medium bowl. Preheat the oven to 375o F. Line two baking sheets with foil
and spray with nonstick cooking spray. In a small nonstick skillet, heat the oil.
Add the curry powder; cook, stirring, until just fragrant, 15-20 seconds.
Remove from the heat; stir in the paprika and drizzle over the potatoes.
Sprinkle with the salt; toss to coat. Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on
the baking sheets and spray evenly with nonstick cooking spray. Bake until
lightly browned, 12-15 minutes; turn and bake until slightly browned at the
edges, 5-10 minutes longer (watch for burning). Place in a paper towel-lined
serving bowl and serve warm.
