Mexican Style Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I think you’re are going to l-o-v-e these Mexican-style baked sweet potato fries!

They are awesomely healthy and more importantly, delicious. The warm mild sweet and saltiness of the sweet potatoes combined with cool fresh, flavorful Mexican-inspired toppings is like a party in your mouth. 🎉 Seriously though, this simple combination of cilantro, a little salt and lime goes such a long way for flavor (Chipotle fans, where you at?) that you don’t need any additional toppings or dressings. Calories saved! 🙌

Speaking of parties, this dish would make a super yummy appetizer. The cool thing is though, it makes a great lunch or dinner too. This might be a stretch but throw a couple sunny side up eggs on top and you could call this breakfast. Very versatile. Very yummy. Did I mention freaking delicious?

Pro tip: Bake your sweet potato fries on a wire cooling rack, placed on top of a cookie sheet. This will help your sweet potato fries cook evenly and prevent them from sticking to the bottom.

Instructions

  • 1. Slice the sweet potatoes into french fry shape. Cut off the tips if you want, otherwise they will become charred when baked.
  • 2. Toss the sweet potato fries in oil and arrange on a wire cooling rack, positioned on top of a baking sheet This will prevent sticking and will allow the fries to cook more evenly. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake at 425˚ for 18-22 minutes or until desired tenderness.
  • 3. While the fries are baking, toss together black beans, corn, serrano pepper, tomatoes, red onion, and lime juice.
  • 4. When fries are done baking, arrange them on a platter, top with black bean and corn mixture, garnish with fresh cilantro and the dig in!
