Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potato Fries

  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 3 large sweet potatoes, (about 2 pounds total)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine the spices and salt. Set aside.

Peel the potatoes, cut each in half lengthwise, and cut each half into six wedges.

In a large bowl, toss the potato slices with the oil and spices until evenly coated.

Place slices on a baking sheet in a single layer.

Bake on the middle rack of the oven until the edges are crisp and the potatoes cooked through. About 35 minutes.

Serve immediately.
