Damn Good Spicy Sweet Fries

There is nothing  better than making fries at home.
Because you didn’t deep fry them you automatically pat yourself on the back and consider yourself healthy-chic. ‘Roasted not fried’ is a proud statement you can say as you set these down on the table for dinner. Therefore you can eat unlimited. Plus sweet potatoes are like…super good for you right?
Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin C, Beta Carotene, Calcium, and Low Glycemic Index in comparison with the lowly white potato. Not to mention they are good for your skin and help to prevent aging!
These babies are a crowd pleaser. Spicy with a sweet kick, serve them aside a beauty steak if your tired of the go-to mashed potatoes. If you don’t dip these in either ketchup or CHIPOTLE DIP there is something seriously wrong with you.
Sweet Potato Fries Recipe (serves 4)
Ingredients
– 3 large sweet potatoes cut into thin strips
– Drizzle of olive oil
– 1 tbsp garlic powder
– 1.5 tbsp brown sugar
– 1 tbsp chili powder
– 1 tsp cayenne
– Lots of salt and pepper *Use a bit more or less depending on how zesty you want these to be

  • Set your oven to 425. Line baking sheet with foil and lots of cooking spray because these fries stick.
  • Place all of the slices potatoes in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle with the garlic salt, cayenne, chili powder and salt and pepper.
  • Mix it all around till everything looks groovy. At this point you can give it a taste to see if you want a little more of this or that. You’ll want these very flavorful.
  • Place the sliced potatoes evenly apart so everyone has there own space and then pop them in the oven.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, take them out and turn them over. Then bake for another 15. Depending on your oven they may need a little more time to brown.
  • Cook them until they are crispy and lightly golden.
 While they are cooking you can prepare your chipotle dip! I use half plain yogurt and half light sour cream. Shake chipotle powder into and stir and taste, stir and taste. Maybe toss some garlic powder in too, and salt and pepper. The dip is pretty much up to your imagination.
