Spicy plantain chips

Yields 2 ½ cups

These are good when just out of the oven, but they will keep for about a day.

INGREDIENTS

2 green plantains;

2 tbsp coconut oil, melted;

1 tsp chili powder;

½ tsp cumin;

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper;

Sea salt to taste;

PREPARATION

Preheat your oven to 400 F.

Remove the skin from the plantains with a knife

and slice them thinly.

Mix the plantain slices in a bowl with the melted

coconut oil, chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper

and sea salt to taste.

Place the slices on a baking sheet and place in

the preheated oven to cook for about 15 minutes,

turning them after 8 minutes. Make sure

that you keep an eye on them near the end as

they can burn rapidly.
