Spicy Jalapeno Sweet Potato Fries
Crispy sweet potato oven fries are seasoned with a spicy jalapeno seasoning and garnished with roasted jalapeno slices.
Yield: 4 servings
  • 1 tsp + 1 tbsp peanut oil
  • 2 lb sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • ½ tsp smoked sea salt
  • 1 tsp jalapeno or chipotle chili powder
  • 1-2 jalapenos, sliced into thin rings
  1. Heat oven to 400F. Place ½ tsp of peanut oil on each of two baking pans. Use a paper towel to spread an even layer of the oil on the pans. Place both baking pans in the oven.
  2. Cut each sweet potato into thin wedges. Toss in a large bowl with the oil, cornstarch, salt, and chili powder. Remove a baking sheet from the oven and place half the sweet potatoes on the sheet, cut side down. Spread them out so that they form a single layer and are not touching. Return the baking sheet to the oven and repeat with the remaining baking sheet and sweet potatoes.
  3. Bake until the side of the sweet potatoes that is directly touching the pan is crusty and golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and turn the sweet potatoes with a thin spatula. Top with the jalapeno slices. Bake until the second side of the sweet potatoes is crusty and brown, 10-15 minutes. Transfer the sweet potatoes to a platter and serve immediately.
