  Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries

Happy Monday people!! We’re having a party today! Ya, you might think weekends are the time for parties, but Monday is the new Friday and we’re going to fiesta!

Why you ask?! Cause one of my food blogging friends, Liz from The Lemon Bowl, is having a BABY!!! And who doesn’t like to celebrate a little baby coming into the world! Bring on the Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries in honor of this celebration!

Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries

These Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries are dangerously addictive! And should we be having this party in real life, instead of online, I’m confident these fries wouldn’t even make it to the party because I would eat them all in my car. Sweet Potatoes are the best. Seriously. They are healthy, packed with tons of beta carotene and who doesn’t love a snack that is good for you and delicious.

So let’s all throw back a few handfuls of these suckers and give a big cheers to Liz on having another baby!!


Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries


  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ¾ cup mayo
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • handful fresh basil


  1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Peel the potatoes and then cut them into 1/4 inch matchsticks.
  3. Put the potato matchsticks and olive oil into a large plastic bag and zip it shut. Shake it up so the fries are evenly coated with olive oil. Add in the garlic powder, chipotle, paprika and salt and pepper and continue to shake.
  4. Lay the potatoes on the baking sheet, careful not to overcrowd the pan and they need room to roast. Use another baking sheet if needed.
  5. Place the fries into the oven and bake for 15 minutes, remove the fries from the oven and give them a shake or flip them to get the other side crispy. Place them back into the oven and bake for 15 minutes more or until they are crispy. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with salt as needed.
  6. In a food processor or blender, blend together the mayo, lemon zest and basil. Serve the fries with the dipping sauce.

  23. Question: The first line of ingredients says “4 sweet potato fries”… huh? Does that mean 4 tubers, 4 cups???
    Comment: We make chipotle mashed sweet potatoes every year for Thanksgiving. That recipe uses lime… so maybe lime would be a nice substitute for the lemon. And, sour cream for dipping…
