I love jalapeno potato chips, and those sea salt and vinegar ones too! Of course they are not something I consume anymore. Here is a healthier alternative.
I found the jalapeno powder at my local Save Mart. No where else in town carries it but I am sure Whole Foods would have it. You can also order it online.
I chose to use fingerling potatoes today but this would also be good with thickly sliced red or white potatoes. Just put them onto parchment paper as they will stick to the pan. If you do the slices they will be more chip like.
2 lbs of fingerling potatoes (washed and cut in half lengthwise if on the larger side or left whole)
2 tsp of melted coconut oil
sea salt to taste
chives- finely minced
white balsamic vinegar
I would have preferred the smaller fingerling potatoes for this recipe (no cutting involved) but Trader Joe’s was out. So I used their slighly larger fingerlings and cut them in half lengthwise. Put the potatoes in a bowl and drizzle the 2 tsps of melted coconut oil over the top. I use my hands for the mixing because I want to make sure all the potatoes have a bit of the coconut oil on them.
Spread potatoes onto cookie sheet, cut side up. Sprinkle lightly with jalapeno powder and sea salt. Put the sheet into the oven that has been preheated to 425 degrees. Cook until crispy- 20-30 minutes.
Sprinkle the potatoes with white balsamic vinegar and a sprinkling of minced chives.
