These sweet and spicy sweet potato fries are perfect with burgers.

Chipotle Cinnamon Sweet Potato Fries

After I photographed these fries tonight, I left the plate on the table while I finished getting dinner ready. I heard the scrape and squeak of a kitchen chair slowly moving across the floor, but didn’t look. Next thing I know, my husband is telling Paige to get off the table and stop eating all the fries.

I think the little angel likes these. She was helping herself. Smart girl.

It is absolutely amazing to me how many people adore sweet potato fries — even if they don’t like sweet potatoes. Take my husband, for instance. The man wouldn’t even touch a sweet potato until last year. But one taste of a good sweet potato fry and he was hooked. Love that. And I love that my kids can’t get enough of them either.

This is a new recipe for us — but one that is literally months (okay, maybe a year) in the making. I have been working, trying and testing to get the right combination of sweet and spicy for these fries. I wanted to get the heat, but not have it leave me with a bitter taste in my mouth.

Finally – FINALLY – I got it right.

    How delicious!

    I too love sweet potato fries! Have you tested yams/garnet yams and sweet potatoes? Any difference?

    Thanks for the nicely spicy fries!

    I love sweet ‘taters so I’ll try this. I usually just roast with olive oil and a little cinnamon but will add the spice. Quick, simple, delicious!
