Baked Sweet Potato Fries

It's only recently that I discovered sweet potatoes. Up until now, I've put all of my focus on the yukon.

The russet.

Maybe an occasional fingerling if I was feeling saucy.

All the while, completely ignoring the deliciously sweet sweet potato. No more!

I found this recipe on http://www.skinnytaste.com/. Gina's site is devoted to healthy meals (and all come with Weight Watcher points listed!). Check her out! I'm looking forward to trying many of her recipes this year.

Spicy Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries

  • 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.


  1. LOVE love love sweet potatoes :) they r soooo good for u :) and when u bake them and season em they r even better!!! :)

  2. Just found you wonderful blog from Spain. As a Brit "foodie", I am in love with some of your recipes. The one featured here is very similar to one I do which is exactly the same but using green bananas (they must be green) and they must be fried (sorry hips!).
    Great recipe; I will definitely try these.
