Don’t get me wrong – I love a good white potato.

But there’s just something about sweet potato fries that can’t be beat.

  1. YUM! I love sweet potatoes and sweet potato fries. Maybe more so than regular ones. I had bought some but I forgot to take them out of the bag and they got all moldy πŸ™ I’ll have to go buy some new ones and gives these a try!! πŸ™‚

    • So glad you like the recipes! I hear you on the daily eats – even I miss posting them a bit! I’m trying to figure out the best way to go about doing it. I might post my day-to-day eats on Instagram for a little bit and see how that goes. Otherwise I might just make a separate tab on the site and add my daily eats there πŸ™‚

    • My boyfriend isn’t either. This recipe was actually an attempt to remedy that – I figured if I topped them with tons of spices and a spicy dipping sauce he’d be more keen on them πŸ™‚

  2. Oh these look so awesome!! I actually used coconut oil to make some the other night- and WOAH. You have to try it. Whole other ball game.

  3. Help! I tried making the saucec and used the adobo paste and my sauce is terrible! What kind of adoba sauce did you use in the sauce?
