Squash Dorito Chips

_MG_8287

Summertime means an abundance of squash. Squash is one of those vegetables that will overtake the world if you turn your back for one second. At least, it overtakes my garden and kitchen that quickly. When you have this much squash, you get creative really quickly about putting it to use. We don’t keep chips or crackers in the house, but everyone needs a good salty, crunchy snack every once in awhile! Thus was the beginning of squash chips.

Shortly after having our third baby, I found this amazing recipe for Dorito seasoning. I used to love doritos back when I ate stuff like that, so when I found this recipe it took about 30 seconds for me to confirm that I had all the ingredients and make a batch. I’m probably not the best judge of this, since I can’t remember the last time I ate Doritos. This seasoning has all the cheesy, salty, spice filled flavor that I remember them having though.

I had crookneck squash on hand when a chip craving hit, so that’s what I used. My butternut squash it almost ripe, and I can’t wait to try it with that.

Slice your squash thinly, around 1/8″

Place on a parchment lined pan

Spray lightly with olive oil. This Misto sprayer is great for this.

Sprinkle on seasoning

Bake at 200 for about 2 hours.

 

Plow your way through all the chips that you made and be thankful that vegetables can taste so amazing!

For THMers this is a FP snack. Pair it with some laughing cow cheese, yum!

    Renee, my family now has a new favorite snack! They beg for them and gobble a whole tray up within 5 minutes of coming out of the oven. Instead of the seasonings you mentioned, I just spritz with olive oil and sprinkle with a generous amount of homemade ranch seasoning. YUM!

    BTW…my first batch of almond milk is soaking now.

    Really enjoying your blog, and I can’t wait to read more!

    Has anyone tried this in a dehydrator? I’m curious. This would free up oven space and you could do quite a bit more.

      They do work in the dehydrator. They don’t get quite the same toasted taste and they’re not quite as crispy, but they work!
