Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

Leave a comment

As usual, I am the only one in my family who likes sweet potatoes.  When I want one, I usually just bake one for myself but I decided that the rest of the family was going to try ONE MORE TIME to eat a sweet potato.  I found this recipe and decided that they might eat them if they were spicy.  Unfortunately, I was wrong.  I loved them!  They wouldn’t eat them because “it tastes like sweet potatoes”.  Well, d’uh!  I give up.


Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

3 sweet potatoes, cut into fries
2 tbsps vegetable oil
1 pkg. taco seasoning (3 tbsps.)
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 425º.

Combine all ingredients in a zip lock bag and mush around until potatoes are well coated.

Spread fries out in a single-layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Bake for 30 minutes, turn, and continue  baking for 15-20 minutes or until crisp. If you cut your fries thinner, they will cook faster so be sure to keep and eye on them.

Happy Cooking!
