Have you ever bought sweet potatoes, only to forget them until they’re sprouting branches. I sure have. I’ve been regularly picking up a couple taters with every intention of making fries like these for months. Finally tonight, I made them! With fresh potatoes too! And they rocked 🙂

Chili-Lime Sweet Fries

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, cut into steak fries
  • 1-2 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 t kosher salt
  • ½ t fresh cracked pepper
  • ½ t chili powder
  • zest of 1 lime
  • Chili-Lime Dipping Sauce (recipe follows)

Heat oven to 425F.

On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the potatoes with the olive oil, salt, pepper, chili powder, and lime zest. Roast in the oven 25 minutes or until cooked through and slightly crispy. Serve with the Chili-Lime Dipping Sauce.

Chili-Lime Dipping Sauce

  • ½ c mayonnaise
  • ¼ t prepared horseradish
  • juice and zest of half a lime
  • ¼ t chili powder

  1. I would love to eat that anytime. It looks so delicious. I love sweet potatoes. Were yours crunchy? mine are always soft after roasting in the oven!

    • They are a little crispy when they come out of the oven, but yeah they soften up pretty quickly. Guess that’s the price we pay for not coating them in batter and frying!
