Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

Lynn demonstrates how to make Spicy Sweet Potato Fries.  These would be a perfect side dish for a barbeque or any meal.  This recipe is easily doubled.


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons paprika, smoked, sweet, or hot
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  I used the Reynold's Nonstick aluminum foil.  

Preheat oven to 400°.

Slice the peeled potatoes in half lengthwise and then cut each half into four wedges.  Toss the wedges with the oil, cayenne pepper, paprika and salt.  Lay the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake for 35-45 minutes until they are browned on the outside and tender all the way through.  Makes 4 servings.
