I love making homemade air fryer sweet potato chips, they are so easy to make, but so much better than the one you can buy in bags.
If you have not made them yet they are simple, just require a few steps and you can have a great appetizer or snack for the entire family, I surprised my family one night, during movie night and they were pleasantly surprised. They also let me an empty bowl, which is always a great sign.

Some Tricks to Makin Air Fryer Sweet Potato Chips in the Air Fryer:
- Do not overcrowd the basket. They will not get crunchy.
- Make sure that you have each and every sweet potato coated with olive oil, which allows for them to crunch.
- Use a mandolin the exact thinness will determine the actual air fryer cooking time.
- This recipe works best if all of the slices are about the same size since the cooking time will be the same.
- You can soak for not soak potatoes for making chips, the only difference it makes is the cooking time. Without soaking them, you just get a longer air frying time, but you do not have to wait for 30 minutes to start to prepare.
- The key to crispy air fryer chips is that they must be coated with olive oil, otherwise, they will never crisp up.
- Shake your basket through the cooking time, so that all the chips get evenly cooked. I usually check my potato chips several times, while air frying them.
- The chips will crisp as they start to cool down.
