Using a sharp vegetable peeler or a knife, cut 1 pound of peeled beets into paper-thin slices. Heat 3 cups of oil in a pan and cook the beet chips in hot oil, in batches, until they are crisp and browned. Drain on paper towels and keep warm in a preheated 350 degree F. oven while cooking the remainder.
Serve chips with Ranch dressing for dipping, or mayonnaise blended with chopped fresh herbs.
