Lightly Salted Potato Chips

Served with sandwiches, enjoyed at summer cookouts, and dunked in delicious dips, I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t appreciate the crispy perfection of a lightly salted potato chip. Unfortunately, they also come with an unhealthy price and it’s difficult to enjoy foods that are bad for your health.

But great news!

You can enjoy a side of chips with your favorite healthy wrap or sandwich with half the fat and salt. Just air fry them from the comfort of your own kitchen. You’ll consume half the fat and get all the nutrients the humble potato has to offer!

However, by air frying tortilla chips, I can still indulge in my favorite snack without worrying about unhealthy oils, additives, or saturated fat. Fried in vegetable oil, olive oil, or avocado oil, these chips are a hit on game day, at parties, or any time you want to treat yourself.
