How To Make Beet Chips In The Air Fryer

Some Pro Tips For Making Air Fryer Beet Chips:
Peel the beets. If you have never peeled beets, they are very simple. Here are some great pointers.
Spread the coated beets on the air fryer tray or in the air fryer basket.
Set the temperature to 310 degrees for 10 minutes, flip the beets with tongs every 3 minutes. If they need additional time, continue air frying and flipping every three minutes until they are done. They will crisp up as they cool down.
Are Dried Beet Chips Healthy?
Beet chips are a great snack as they are full of nutrients. Beets are not the lowest in carbs but they are a nutrient-rich vegetable.
Making them at home allows you to make chips containing preservatives, like some bags you buy in-store.
Why Are My Beet Chips Soggy?
If you run into your beet chips being soggy, it could mean a few reasons. All beets have a lot of moisture. Sometimes if you don’t cut your beets thin enough, they will stay thicker and become soggy.
The other thing is, you might need to cook your chips a bit longer. While I give an air frying time, you have to use it as a guide. All air fryers heat just a bit different so that the timing can vary a bit.
If you are worried about the beets’ moisture, then sprinkle with salt and place in a single layer on a paper towel. Allow them to sit for 15 minutes or so. This will help them sweat out. Pat the beets down to remove water that has come out.
Spices To Use To Season Beet Chips
- Salt or Sea Salt
- Cajun Seasoning
- Garlic Salt
Can I Make These In The Oven
If you want to make these in the oven, go right ahead. You will prep and lay your beet slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Make sure to spray the pan or line with parchment paper.
Then bake, flipping to check on doneness. When they become crisp, remove them from the oven and serve them up.
Storing Beet Chips
Since these chips are freshly made and have no preservatives, their shelf life is less than store-bought. Go ahead and allow your chips to cool down and then store them in an airtight container or sealable bag.
It is essential to allow the chips to cool down fully. Otherwise, you will find that the beets will build condensation, and it will then sog up the chips. Then they will spoil fast.
Store your chips on the counter at room temperature for a day or two. These beet chips are best when served up fresh straight from the air fryer.
