Makes 4 servings
4 large Russet potatoes, skins on, scrubbed well and pat dried or air-dried
2 Tbsps olive oil, or avocado oil
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garlic salt
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
green onions, thinly sliced
black beans, rinsed and drained

jalapeños, finely sliced
a small handful of fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1 medium avocado, diced
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt, to serve
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees f. and line two large baking trays with parchment paper or Silpat. Using a very sharp knife, carefully slice the potatoes as thin as possible. A mandoline works well too.Divide potato slices onto the 2 prepared baking trays and sprinkle equally with seasonings. Drizzle with oil and toss until thoroughly coated.Spread potato slices evenly in a single layer (Give them lots of space on the baking sheets so that they can crisp up) then place into your preheated oven.Bake for 15-20 minutes, flipping them once, then continue roasting until golden and crispy.Keep an eye on them and remove from the oven once the potato chips are done to your liking.Top with desired toppings and enjoy immediately!
