Jalapeno Zucchini Chips

 

Recently, a friend of mine made hummus and brought it to work so I could try.  It was delicious and while I was eating it (with carrot sticks) I kept thinking how I would love to scoop it up with some potato chips.  Then I started craving potato chips.  Dang you, hummus for making me crave potato chips.
However, it did get me to thinking… Recently, I had seen some different versions of baked zucchini chips floating around and I just happen to have some zucchini on hand.  Why not make my own awesomely healthy version of a chip?  My own zucchini chip with less the fatness and more the flavor!

Baked Zucchini Chips

Ingredients
1 Zucchini
Seasoning (any flavor that fits your fancy)

Directions
1.  Preheat oven to 225 degrees and line pan with non stick foil.
2. Thinly slice zucchini and arrange the slices on the pan.  Season.  I used a Jalapeno seasoning because I am from the South and I love hotness!

 

3.  I baked for an hour and then checked on them.  Some were completely dehydrated and “chip-like” so I removed those and continued baking the rest until they were done.  Thicker slices take longer to cook. of course, so I suggest trying to slice the zucchini as thin as possible.

These were great and totally reminded me of eating a chip.  I did not have any hummus to dip it into,that will probably be my next venture!  
 
Question: What is your favorite flavor potato chip? (I want to try to recreate different versions of the zucchini chip!)
