Squash chips

Since all it takes is one squash plant to give me more squash then I can ever eat it is nice to be able to make other things out of it that will last a while.  A quick and easy one to do is to make chips out of them.  I use the dehydrator to make them.  Slice them into 1/4 inch slices then spread on dryer racks.  Season to however you like.  I have 3 different flavors going in this one today,  Ghost pepper infused salt, cajun seasoning, and some garlic salt.  The next batch will be just plain dehydrated squash which are made the exact same way minus the seasoning.  Dry for 6-8 hours at 130F.  Then store in airtight containers for up to 6 months.  They are still good after that but will lose some of their nutritional value.
