To make my Kumara Chips you will of course need Kumara (sweet potato). I like to flavour these with Onion Powder and Paprika. Plus a collection of toppings.
- Corn kernels

- Bacon: This can be substituted for ham, salami, pepperoni, shredded chicken or left out entirely to make this a meat-free meal.
- Cheese: The grated cheese brings all the toppings together
