Baked Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries

April 7, 2011

 

When I lived in Colorado Springs, I discovered Sweet Potato Fries – and let me just say, they are one of my favorite side items! A little sweet, a little salty – yumm.

 

These were a fun experiment to try.  I found them on my new favorite blog, Ginas Skinny Recipes.  Find official recipe here.

 

This is a great WW friendly side.  I see this being a new favorite in my house!

 

Baked Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries
(Recipe Inspired Here

  • 1 sweet potato (about 5” long) peeled and cut into 1/4” fries

  • 2 tsp olive oil

  • sea salt

  • ground chipotle chile

  • garlic powder

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

 

Peel sweet potato and cut into 1/4” fries.  Make sure they are all cut to the same size to ensure even cooking.

 

A trick I would recommend is to buy a fat round potato and cut the edges off so it’s more of a rectangle.  Cut into 6 rectangle pieces – this makes it easier to cut into square strips.

 

In a large bowl, toss sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt, garlic powder and chipotle chile powder.  Since the directions didn’t call for a specific amount of sea salt, ground chipotle chile or garlic powder – I just tossed a bunch in until I felt it was seasoned enough.

 

Spread potatoes on a baking sheet.  Avoid crowding so potatoes get crisp.  Bake 15 minutes.  Turn and bake an additional 10-15 minutes.
