Serrano ham chips

Surely more than once you may have found in some snack at a wedding or in any restaurant that kind of crispy biscuit with indefinitely but with a resounding taste of ham. Called chips or crispy serrano ham and although the original recipe requires long cooking that I give here is super quick and easy and will help you surprise your guests.

The first few times that I did these chips, you made them in the oven, but it takes two hours to dry them in the oven. One day I discovered by chance when heating a snack of my son on the bus, which can be done in the microwave in minutes.

  • Difficulty level: very easy
  • For 4 people
  • Preparation time: 3 minutes.


  • 4 slices of serrano ham (€1.17)
  • Microwave
  • Roll of absorbent kitchen paper


1 up an absorbent kitchen roll paper two slices of ham, one are placed side by side (not one above the other), and you cover it with another sheet of absorbent paper.

You put 2 in the microwave at full power approximately 40 seconds. Normal is that they are somewhat dry but not harsh. Then you turn to put them in the micro for another 30 seconds, do find them and turn them to look at.

3. If they are not, you turn to repeat for another 30 seconds. Why so many times and not blow?. Why not you give the exact time?. Because on the one hand because each microwave has a different power and that one is done in 30 seconds in another you need a minute. On the other hand, it is better to do it in several times and with little time ever because reaches a point where ham is dried more and desirable to throw away it and start again. So I recommend that you have patience and do as it explains the recipe to avoid having to waste nothing.

4. these chips are fantastic as a side dish of tortillas, rice and especially vegetable creams. Another trick that will be much help: you can also grind them and make them powder and will be for a simple egg garnish, sprinkle it over white rice and to reinforce the flavor in the bechamel croquettes, since this dry ham although there's nothing fat, preserves the flavor of the ham.
