I finally got back in the kitchen this week, and made these awesome spicy sweet potato fries. I have blogged about sweet potato fries before, but these are the kind that you keep reaching for, even when your mouth is burning!

I tossed the sliced potato with olive oil, paprika, cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and salt. Then I baked them for about 30 minutes at 425F. They tasted amazing, but weren’t as crispy as I’d like. I think they may have been too crowded in the pan, but they were still good. Just make sure to have your favorite cold beverage handy….

  1. I saw Ming Tsai make sweet potato fries once on tv and he said to lightly dust them in corn starch before cooking to make them crispy. I didn't try it yet though.

  2. If it's good enough for Ming, it's good enough for me to try! thanks!

  3. Yep, I suggest using cornstarch and I love the how crispy they can be. I haven't thought of using chili though
