View Full Version : Suggestions to knock out my BBQ chip craving

I would love any suggestions for a great sub for BBQ chips. It doesn't have to be actual chips, maybe something to flavor sunflower seeds or something...I'm not very good at creating recipes and would appreciate any help. I'm craving BBQ potato chips so badly! This is not surprising since I had years through college when I ate them every day (not exaggerating!) I've made the chips in Alissa's books, but didn't like them. I tried several times, but couldn't get them to turn out. Thanks!

hmmmm, well,i love sweet potato chips made in the dehydrator.
you could make a BBQ powder~ garlic & onion powder, chilli powder, paprika(smoked,yes,not raw cause it is smoked, but a pinch or 2 should do it, or liquid smoke, a drop or 2)
salt, some sweetener.....stevia would work. a bit of nut yeast maybe if you use it. dash of cayenne.
sprinkle on the sweet potatoes before you dehydrate?
OK,now i want these...i will experiment & get back to this thread!

Here's a Doritos thread that might be worth a try to see if it works for you:

Tropigal, can you give me some pointers on making the sweet potato chips? When I tried the cheesy ones in Alissa's book, they turned out gross. I don't have a special slicer, so I used a knife and cut as thin as possible, would that be the problem? The spices you listed sound like it would be really good...yum. Did you soak the sweet potato slices first?
Oh, I just found a recipe for BBQ chips:
1 1/2 cup water
1-2 dates (soaked) or 12 raisins
3/4 t chili powder
1 celery stock
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes (soaked)
dash cayenne pepper
nama shoyu or celtic salt to taste
2/3 cup flax seeds (soaked overnight)
1/4 tp 1/2 beet (optional)
Blend all except flax. taste. then add flax and blend well. Mixture should be thick, not runny
Drop by spoonfuls on teflex. dehydrate 10-12 hours at 105, flip and dehydrate 8-10 hours or desired crispness.
I like these. I often make them as BBQ burgers instead of crackers.

1 C fresh tomatoes, chopped
1/4 C chopped onion
1/2 C dried tomatoes, soaked 15-30 min.
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1-2 tsp minced jalapeno
juice of 1 lemon or lime
2-4 Tblspoon agave nectar or honey
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 beet and/or 1/2 red bell pepper
1 tsp nama shoyu (soy sauce)
1.5 C raw walnuts
1.5 C raw cashews
Blend all but the nuts in a high-speed blender and pour into a mixing bowl. Chop the nuts in a food processor by pulsing the motor; leave them pretty chunky. Stir in the chopped nuts and adjust the seasonings, remembering that flavors intensify when the mix is dehydrated. Spread on teflex on dehydrator tray. Dehydrate until firm, slicing into squares and turning over onto screen, then dry until crunchy. Eat as a snack or as the main dish for a meal.
