Sweet potato fries

potatoesI love the sweet potatoes.  I got this recipe on Food52.  Food52 has this great product where you can save the recipes you like under folders that you label.  I have been building one out called Summer.  It is easy to get lost in there.

On another note…I need to work on the photos of food this summer.

I used about 12 sweet potatoes.  Preheated the oven to 425.  I also made the dip that was recommended on the side.  It is key.

I cut them into small wedges.  Probably worth boiling them first and then sticking them in the oven.  They can bake quicker and get crisper but I did not.  It all worked out.

Take the small wedges and toss them in

1/4 cup paprika

1/4 cup chili powder

1/4 cup cumin

1 tbsp. salt

1 tbsp. pepper

Massive olive oil.

Lay them on a baking pan either covered with tin foil or parchment paper.  Roast until crisp.

2 cups sour cream

3 heaping tbsp. chopped cilantro

2 limes squeezed over the sour cream (about 3 tbsp.)

1 1/2 tbsp. sweet chili sauce

salt and pepper to taste.

Mix and serve along side the piping potatoes.  They go quick.
