Baked Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries

These guiltless “fries” are lightly tossed with olive oil and spices, then baked in the oven instead of fried. The perfect balance of spicy and sweet. Serves two as a side dish or one for lunch. I served this with skinny ranch dip on the side.

  • 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°.

In a medium bowl, toss sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt, garlic powder and chipotle chile powder.

Spread potatoes on a baking sheet. Avoid crowding so potatoes get crisp. Bake 15 minutes. Turn and bake an additional 10-15 minutes. Ovens may vary so keep an eye on them and be sure to cut all the potatoes the same size to ensure even cooking.
