If you are looking for a mildly sweet with a spicy kick snack, you have come to the right place. Normally, I feel guilty downing baskets of fries but these wedges are pretty healthy being BAKED and seasoned very well so I'll have another basket full please.
I'm sure you can use the same recipe with regular potatoes but I am stuck on the sweet potato train and have made these twice in one week.
Without further delay....let's bake!
2 pounds of Sweet Potatoes, 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 1 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of chipotle chili powder
Step by Step Instructions
1. Pre heat your oven to 425 degrees. Be sure to place your baking sheet in the oven while preheating.
2. Wash, Peel and slice your sweet potatoes into strips (or wedges or circles...whatever your preference is). I opted for skinny fries - the thinner, the crispier.
3. Toss the olive oil and potatoes together until WELL coated.
4. Add your seasonings one by one and mix together. Again, be sure the seasons are coated on thoroughly.
4. Pull your heated baking sheet out of the oven and place a parchment sheet on top.
5. Lay your coated potato slices on top and be sure they are spaced out. You don't want any overlapping or too close together.
6. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Check on the fries at the 10 minute mark to ensure your fries aren't burning. They will begin to sizzle and the ends will begin to darken (don't worry...that means they're getting crispy).
7. Take out and flip fries to the other side. I usually toss mine around as flipping each one is a tedious job and I'm impatient.
8. Pop back in the oven for another 5-8 minutes being sure not to burn them.
9. Pull them out and serve when hot! I love mixing some Texas Pete hot sauce with ketchup to give these an extra kick. Should you want a nice flavor contrast, dip these fries in a ranch. You are warned, these can be very addicting.
