Roast Sweet Potato Chile Chips

These delicious roasted sweet potatoes can accompany meat, fish or vegetarian dishes. We love our sweet potatoes; Chinese farmers would cook these over charcoal buried in the earth - something my grandparents did, too. Now the modern Chinese family in China would have an oven, which means they can slow-roast sweet potatoes to perfection!
