These Irish style baked sweet potato wedges are topped with my favorite nacho toppings and they are dangerously good!!

Ingredients

For the Potatoes:

  • cooking spray
  • 4 medium (about 7 oz each sweet potatoes, skin on)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Coarse salt and fresh-cracked pepper

For topping:

  • 1/2 bell pepper (sliced thin)
  • 1/3 cup sharp shredded cheddar cheese (I used Cabot)
  • 1/2 cup Pepper Jack light cheese
  • 1 medium scallion (chopped)
  • pickled jalapeño slices
  • 4 tbsp tomato (diced small)
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • sliced black olives (optional)
  • salsa (for dipping)

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 425°F.  Lightly spray a baking sheet with oil.
  • Cut the sweet potatoes in half, the place the cut side down on a cutting board and carefully cut each half into 3 equal sized wedges. This will give you 24 wedges total.
  • In a large bowl, combine potatoes and oil; toss well. Season with paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, salt and pepper and toss to coat.
  • Place potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheets and bake in the center of the oven, uncovered for about 9 to 10 minutes on each side.
  • Remove from oven and place fries into four small oven-safe dishes (or one large dish for sharing), top with bell peppers, cheddar and jack cheese and return to oven for about 2 minutes, or until the cheese melts. Finish with scallions, jalapeño, tomato, cilantro and black olives. Serve with salsa on the side.
