Crispy Beet Chips!

IMG_1649I got the idea to make these while scrolling through my food-filled instagram account and saw a bunch of beet inspired dishes. While grocery shopping I saw red and golden beets and had to buy them. I was making burgers for dinner and instead of going for my go-to side of baked sweet potato fries, I decided to make beet chips.

They were delicious and super easy to make. Just make sure you cut them as thin as possible. I used a mandolin slicer (here) but you can use a sharp knife but watch your fingers!!

Enjoy!
