Sweet Chili Sweet Potato Fries

I realized last night that its been almost a month since I last shared a recipe with all of you!  My apologies for that, but I’ve also had a lot of running and race news to share with all of you.  Preston and I have made these sweet potato fries a couple of times now.  They’re absolutely delicious, and so easy to make!

2 medium sweet potatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp honey


1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2.  Peel the potatoes, and cut into 1/2 inch thick chunks/slices.

3.  Toss the cut potatoes in a mixing bowl with the olive oil, chili powder, sea salt, and cinnamon.  Spread onto a cookie sheet.
4.  Drizzle the honey over potatoes.
5.  Cook in oven for 15-20 minutes, flipping the potatoes halfway through cooking time.

We’ve enjoyed these sweet potatoes with chicken, pork, and steak, usually with a salad on the side.  The meal combinations for these potatoes are endless.  We’ve found them to be a perfect compliment to a spicier meat, as the sweetness of the potatoes nicely balances the savory spices that we like to top our meats with.

QOTD: What is your perfect sweet and spicy combination?

    How about adding in some garlic salt instead of sea salt?

    Sounds delicious! I’ve never done honey with sweet potatoes before for some reason. I love fruit for a sweet savory combination. I’ve made watermelon salsa before that’s delicious. It’s pretty much a normal salsa recipe with cilantro, onions, jalapeno, salt but uses chopped watermelon instead of the tomatoes. Sounds slightly strange but it’s tasty.
