9 times out of 10, if you ask me to choose between French fries and dessert, I’ll pick fries. Surprise! I like baking sweets more than eating them, and my true weakness is the salty food. Especially fried, salty, starches. Nevertheless, I totally understand that fried foods aren’t an every day treat – nor would I want them to be. Instead, I find other ways to satisfy my cravings, like these fabulously seasoned baked chipotle sweet potato fries!

Baked fries aren’t, and never will be, as crispy as fried potatoes, without adding a bunch of other things, and this is okay. I firmly believe there is room in this world for both baked and fried potatoes. But when it comes to my baked fries, I really love to get creative with the seasoning! Not only does it provide variety, but then I’m not comparing a fried fry with a baked fry. I can enjoy each individually for what they are.

Sweet potatoes are a wonderful choice for baked fries because they already have a lovely flavor on their own, and they’re such a great pairing for so many different spices. Sweet potatoes also a great source of beta carotene and other good-for-you nutrients. I love a good sweet and savory combination, so I’m pairing a little heat with a bit of sweet to make these baked chipotle sweet potato fries.

The trick to getting a bit of crisp on the baked fries is to cut them thin. Aim for about 1/4″ diameter so the tapered ends get crispy and the middle retains a softer texture. Thinner, and you might burn the potatoes, and thicker potatoes won’t allow you to get many crispy edges. I promise, the fries are still totally addicting. We loved them, and always a hit at our table.

Enjoy darlings!
