Crispy BAKED Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries – these babies are gonna be your new favorite healthy dinner side. Paired with a Honey Sriracha Aioli that you’ll want to slather on everything!
We got home from church, turned on the Packers vs. Falcons game and within the first 15 minutes I felt sick to my stomach.
How can you go from such an incredible hard fought game the weekend before to absolute crap the following? I mean they went to into the locker room at halftime with a score of 24-0!!!!!! Ridiculous!
I’m so sad.
And now. Neither of my teams will be in the Super Bowl and Tom Brady will. Booo! Hisss! Something is wrong with the world.
Luckily, the food situation in the world is all good. Mostly because we are starting out the week with these Sweet Potato Fries!
Who wouldn’t want Fries on a Monday!? Am I right?
It’s the best way to start off the week.
And not only are these Sweet Potato Fries baked instead of fried but they are loaded with flavor! The chipotle chili seasoning coated around each fry and then baked till they are nice and crispy. Yup, pretty much irresistible.
But the kicker, and my husbands favorite part, was the Honey Sriracha Aioli. Ya’ll I had an idea of how I wanted this aioli to taste. I started adding a little of this and a little of that and it just wasn’t working. I thought I was going to have to toss it and start over. But before I did, I added in a little more Sriracha and garlic powder and …. viola! Absolute perfection! This dipping sauce may just be the best one I’ve made so far! I actually might start putting it on a sandwiches, it’s that good!
So if you’re in need of a dynamite side dish to make with that seared chicken. This is it!
