Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potato Fries


potatoSweet and Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potatoes have to be one of my most favorite foods. I love the health benefits, the taste and the fact that they are so versatile. You can tell this by my yummy yams post. I make these for my boys and they gobble them up. I can use 5lbs of potatoes and not have any leftovers. It may be that they are 8 teenage boys. But, I like to think it is because they are delicious. This is great for potlucks because it goes with almost.


2 large garnet yams or sweet potatoes, cut into wedges

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon cayenne

For dip:

1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons chipotle peppers, chopped

1 teaspoon fresh lime juice


Preheat oven to 425ºF.

Toss cut sweet potatoes in olive oil, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and cayenne. Make sure every wedge is evenly coated.

Roast cut-side down for 30 minutes, turning once.

While sweet potatoes are roasting, mix Greek yogurt, peppers, and lime juice in a small jar. Set aside in the fridge for whenever you’re ready to dip!
