Baked Beet Chips

The other day, I got a new vegetable slicer and I have been slicing up any vegetable I have in the fridge ever since. I had a bunch of beets in the crisper and remembered tasting beet chips a long time ago. Thin, crispy, sweet and salty, beet chips are a great healthy snack.

To make sure that you do not have purple stained hands when working with beets, peel them under cold water. I sliced them 1/16 inch thick which, after baking, created the perfect crispy beet chip. They were baked low and slow so that they dry out. Serve them with buttermilk ranch dressing.
