Description

A healthy, festive, crowd-pleasing appetizer recipe. Sweet and spicy oven baked sweet potato fries with chipotle aioli.


Ingredients

Scale

For the Aioli

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 finely minced garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice (about 1/2 a juicy lime)
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • Salt to taste

For the Sweet Potatoes

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into thin wedges.I suggest you slice the potato into thirds lengthwise. Then cut each slice into "fries." If the potatoes are very long, cut them in half crosswise before slicing them into thirds.
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (Chipotle or other)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional - if you like a lot of heat)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425º.
  2. Make Aioli Whisk mayonnaise, garlic, lime juice, and chipotle chili powder in a small bowl. Season with salt, to taste. Store, covered, in the fridge until ready to serve.
  3. Potatoes Pat the potato wedges dry with paper towels or a clean dish towel. Toss with olive oil in a large bowl. Add seasonings and toss again, to coat.
  4. Spread potatoes out in a single layer on one or two baking sheets*, and roast for 25-30 minutes, flipping them over after 20 minutes, until lightly browned in spots. (*if you use two baking sheets and spread the potatoes out more, they'll be a bit firmer and crisper)
  5. Mound onto a platter. Serve with small bowl of aioli on the side.
