Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

Drizzled with a touch of olive oil and gently dusted with a savory season blend of chili powder and sea salt, these sweet potato fries pair perfectly with our Philly Cheese Steak Sliders.

For a vegetarian meal, try them with our Italian Bean Burgers.

If your fries are for kiddos or if you’re not partial to spicy food, feel free to omit the chili powder.
