Beet Chips + Yogurt Chipotle Sauce ~ I am a dip-per and I have been for some time. This is not to say I don’t have my wits about me (although sometimes this could be true), it’s to say that I enjoy things that need to be dipped into sauces and creamy goodness. I blame my dip-per-tude in part on the fact that there are copious amounts of places to get chips and queso around these parts (yum!) and in part that I just enjoy interactive foods. You know the foods that you can stand close by to and dip-and-go as you talk without realizing just how much you have consumed? Yep, those. To balance out a recent queso extravaganza I decided to make a healthy dip with healthy little dippers to match. These golden beets were just too pretty to resist but you could certainly try this with red beets or a variety of beets if you prefer. The yogurt chipotle dipping sauce has a creamy texture with a hint of heat and smoke that jives well with the naturally sweet beets. Go ahead, dip in.

Instructions
for the beet chips
  1. Layout 2-3 cookie sheets and line them with parchment paper -- I used about 1 sheet per beet, you may have to work in batches. Set aside cookie sheets and preheat oven to 350. Wash beets well and remove the greens and any end hanging roots. Next, using a Mandoline slice each beet thinly (about 1/16") and place into a large bowl. Add olive oil and salt and mix together well. I recommend using your hands to ensure each beet slice gets coated. Once evenly coated place beets out onto prepared cookie sheets spacing them apart evenly so they aren't touching. Place into the oven for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn the cookie sheets to the other side and cook for another 10-15 minutes or until the edges curl and thy begin to crunch up. Remove from the oven. Blot any remaining oil off of the chips and serve.
for the chipotle yogurt sauce
  1. Place yogurt into a small bowl with chipotle powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Stir together well and serve along side beet chips for dipping.
