I love these sweet potato fries! I add 1 tbsp of paprika instead of the amount the recipe suggests to make it more spicy. The spices work really well and definitely add a zing to the fries. They are really simple but always work as a healthy, savory snack that fills me up. The avocado dip goes great with them.

I can’t wait to try these. Such a fan of sweet potatoes. Note to self- get sweet potatoes after work. Yum. Thanks for creating this recipe.
Love how healthy these fries and the dip are! Avocado and cilantro were made for each other- pinning 🙂
These sounds great, but where does the oil come in? I don’t see the oil included in the actual instructions. Thank you.
Forgot to add the oil. The oil gets drizzled on the potatoes after you remove them from the bag and place on the pan. I’ve updated the recipe above. Enjoy!
