Late Afternoon Snackin’

If you live in Texas know that Mexican food is kind of a big deal here. Being on paleo, one of the hardest things I’ve given up is chips and queso. My hubs has definitely sacrificed his love for queso because he won’t order any unless I eat some. So needless to say, he hasn’t had any queso in a very long time. So this next recipe inspired my long lost love of chips and queso…paleo style…and the fact that we didn’t have any food in the house 🙂

The hubs did finally get a day off, so we went to our favorite place, Village Burger Bar. To us, this place is kind of like Cheers where everyone knows your name and the drinks are always delicious and CHEAP.

I mean, living in DFW, do you know anywhere where you can get draft import beer for $2.50 and a delicious margarita for $3.75?…ALL THE TIME. So I was good and I got my burger with no bun, no cheese and no dressing. It’s still delicious because they top it with bacon and avocado, YUM!

Needless to say, after we ate a late lunch and we were not so hungry for dinner…rather just a late afternoon snack 🙂

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take a mandolin slicer and slice your sweet potatoes. I would set your slicer on about an 1/8 of an inch for your chips. Once your sweet potatoes are all sliced, lay them out evenly, but be sure not to overlap any of your slices or they won’t cook all of the way through. Melt your coconut oil in a small bowl and glaze each chip with some coconut oil. Salt and pepper your chips and pop in the oven. You may have to make a few batches depending on the size of your baking sheet. I had to make 2 batches with one sweet potato. Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes until they are crispy. You make want to keep an eye on them to make sure none of your chips burn. Take them out of the oven and let them cool
