How Do You Make My Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries?

Rinse and wash a medium to large sweet potato and slice it into 1/8″ thick uniform slices using a sharp knife or a mandoline slicer. My favorite mandoline slicer will quickly slice the potatoes and ensure they are all a uniform thickness.

Step 2. Mix the Seasoning

Pour two tablespoons of olive oil into a medium-sized mixing bowl. My favorite oil is extra light olive oil and stainless steel mixing bowls. Then add the remaining seasonings and quickly mix with a spatula.

Step 3. Coat The Sweet Potatoes

Mix the sliced sweet potatoes by hand in the oil and seasonings making sure to coat both sides of every chip.

Step 4. Load the Air Fryer

Evenly spread the sweet potato slices across the bottom of the air fryer basket. The pieces can overlap slightly but do not place them entirely on each other. Then bake the chips at 380°F for ten minutes in the air fryer.

Step 5. Check the Chips

Take the tray out of the air fryer, check the sweet potato chips for doneness, and remove any completely brown chips. Cook the remaining chips for an additional 2-3 minutes. The chips will continue to crisp once placed on the counter to cool.

Notes

You can store any leftover chips in an air-tight container. They will soften from the moisture when you open the container the next day. You can reheat them in the air fryer for about 2-3 minutes to crisp them up again. Keep an eye on them because they will burn quickly.
