Is there anything better than sweet potato fries?

Don’t get me wrong – I love a good white potato.

But there’s just something about sweet potato fries that can’t be beat.

Especially when baked and combined with a spicy Adobo Chipotle Dipping Sauce.

Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries with Adobo Chipotle Dipping Sauce

Serves 2

Ingredients

For the Fries:

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

For the Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
  • 2 tsp. adobo sauce*
  • 1/8 tsp. ground chipotle*
  • 1/8 tsp. paprika*
* More can be added of each depending on your tolerance for spiciness.

Directions:

For the Fries:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Slice sweet potato into wedges or sticks depending on your desired thickness.
  3. Dump cut potatoes into a large mixing bowl with olive oil, mixing with your hands to combine.  Be sure the majority of the potatoes are covered with oil.
  4. In a small bowl, combine paprika, chipotle and oregano then combine with potatoes, mixing well to ensure full coverage.
  5. Arrange potatoes in a thin layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through or until potatoes begin to crisp and brown.
  6. Remove from the oven.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

For the Sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, combine all sauce ingredients.
  2. Serve with fries fresh out of the oven.

I love this dipping sauce! Chipotles in adobo are one of my go-to adds for eggs or hummus… now it will be for dips! :)

Love all the recipes, but I miss your old daily-eats posts! Will they be coming back?

Reply

Cait July 25, 2012

So glad you like the recipes! I hear you on the daily eats – even I miss posting them a bit! I’m trying to figure out the best way to go about doing it. I might post my day-to-day eats on Instagram for a little bit and see how that goes. Otherwise I might just make a separate tab on the site and add my daily eats there :)

i never ate sweet potatoes before this year and now i can’t stop!!! lol. but my husband still isn’t a fan…

Reply

Cait July 26, 2012

My boyfriend isn’t either. This recipe was actually an attempt to remedy that – I figured if I topped them with tons of spices and a spicy dipping sauce he’d be more keen on them :)

Help! I tried making the saucec and used the adobo paste and my sauce is terrible! What kind of adoba sauce did you use in the sauce?

Reply

Cait August 7, 2012

Oh no I’m so sorry to hear that! I used this, just scooping out the sauce and leaving the peppers remaining.
