Spicy Sweet Potato Oven Fries
- Total Time
Sweet and spicy are a fantastic duo – especially in a fry! Works well with white potatoes, too.
uncooked sweet potato(es)1 pound(s), cut into 4-inch long X 1/2-inch-thick fries
cooking spray2 spray(s)
olive oil2 tsp
chili powder1 tsp, chipotle variety
ground turmeric1 tsp
table salt½ tsp, or to taste
fresh lime(s)½ medium, cut into wedges
- Soak cut potatoes in cold water for at least 30 minutes or up to an hour; drain.
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Coat a nonstick cookie sheet with cooking spray. Arrange fries on prepared pan, packed tightly together; drizzle with oil and turn potatoes until fries are well-coated with oil.
- In a small bowl, combine chili powder, turmeric, salt and sugar. Sprinkle half of spice mixture over fries; flip fries and sprinkle with remaining spices. Turn fries over several times to make sure spice mixture is evenly distributed.
- Spread fries out and bake, turning once or twice during baking, until desired degree of doneness, about 25 to 32 minutes. Serve with lime wedges and extra salt on the side, if desired. Yields 1/4 of potatoes per serving.
