Recipe - Sweet Potato Fries

Posted by Magic of Spice

I went into McDonald's yesterday and said, "I'd like some fries." And the girl behind the counter says, "Would you like fries with that?" ~Jay Leno

Sweet Potato Fries


What you will need:
3 large sweet potatoes 
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin, ground
2 -3 pinches of chipotle chili powder

Let’s get cooking:
In a large bowl, put the olive oil, paprika, chipotle and cumin
Cut the sweet potatoes in half, lengthwise
Then cut each half into strips about 1/2 inches wide
Cut each strip in half so that you have french fry-style pieces
Put the sweet potato strips into the bowl, coat well
In a preheated oven at 450 degrees
Place fries on a lightly oiled baking sheet
Bake until the fries are very soft all the way through, and are a bit crispy on the outside
about 20 to 30 minutes
