Spicy Sweet Potato Fries with Chipotle Dipping Sauce

Published November 16, 2012 by jenmatteson

I’ve made many baking sheets full of sweet potato fries in the past, but I thought this one has been the best so far.  The dipping sauce was no joke either!  The crisp outside and soft inside is what makes these so good, and the spicy seasoning certainly didn’t hurt either.

I served these as an appetizer at my Ladies Wine Workout alongside crispy baked zucchini fries.  I wished I would have taken a better picture, but I was slightly pressed for time and needed to get everything on the table.  I would definitely serve these again!

Servings: 2-4

Ingredients:

For the fries:
1 large sweet potato, scrubbed
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp oregano
salt and pepper

For the sauce:
1/3 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
1 chipotle in adobe
1/8 tsp paprika

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Prepare a baking sheet with foil and cooking spray.  Slice sweet potato into thick matchsticks.  Place potatoes into large mixing bowl and add olive oil.  Toss to coat all fries.

2. In a small bowl, combine paprika, chili powder and oregano.  Sprinkle over potatoes and mix well with hands to ensure all fries are evenly coated.

3. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 30 minutes (or until they reach desired doneness) on lowest oven rack, flipping halfway through.  Salt and pepper to taste.

4. In the bowl of a food processor, combine yogurt, chipotle and paprika.  Serve fries with dipping sauce.
