I love a simple, delicious recipe that requires minimal ingredients, and takes less than thirty minutes to prepare. Lately I’ve been into sweet potatoes, whether its in salads, soups, as chips or even in muffins. So I thought, why not make fries? Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet, so they’re begging to be tossed in all things spicy. A spice mix including salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne, garlic powder and thyme make these fries out of this world fantastic! The perfect side for a burger, as a snack, or even an appetizer, these Spicy Sweet Potato fries are so delicious, you’ll be making them all the time.
