Chili Sweet Potato Fries Recipe Is a Healthy Snack With a Zesty Kick

This spicy twist on fries takes 30 minutes in the air fryer and comes with a zesty lime dipping sauce! 

Add a spicy twist to regular sweet potatoes with this delicious chili sweet potato fries recipe. Picture crispy sweet potato fries, baked to golden perfection in the air fryer and dusted with a flavorful blend of chili powder, cumin and paprika. Now that’s comfort food with a fiery upgrade. Plus, sweet potatoes add nutritional value and a sweet flavor to compliment the spice. They’re rich in vitamins A, C and manganese, as well as anticancer properties. For another healthy spin on fries, try our recipe for chickpea fries.

For a helpful tip, soak the potato slices in cold water beforehand for extra crispy fries. And if you don’t have an air fryer, don’t worry. We have a trick for making crispy fries in the oven every time. To serve, our creamy lime-kissed dipping sauce perfectly compliments these spiced-right spuds. Or you can build your own bar of sauces if you’re serving a crowd. Let us know how you like ’em in the comments!
