Spicy roasted sweet potato fries are a classic addition to grilled chicken, steak, or a burger. These fries complement many dishes, and they are so fun to make and eat. Roasting brings out the sweetness in the potato, which blends perfectly with spicy ingredients.
- 2 large sweet potatoes or 3 – 4 small
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika*
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon chili powder*
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder*
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin*
Prepare Potatoes. Peel sweet potatoes and cut potatoes into ¼” thin strips, then place in a large bowl. TIP: Cut potato in half crosswise, then cut each half into 6 – 8 lengthwise strips.
Add olive oil. Drizzle olive oil over potato strips in the bowl and stir to coat.
Add Spices. Combine paprika, salt, pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, and cumin in a small bowl. Sprinkle spices over the potatoes and mix well to cover all pieces with the seasoning.
Roast. Spread evenly on a greased sheet pan—Roast for 15 minutes
Turn. Remove from oven and turn with a spatula and loosen from pan.
Roast again for an additional 10-15 more minutes until the sweet potatoes are cooked through, tender, and browned.
*For a Paleo diet, spices should be preservative-free.
