Ingredients

FRIES

  • 2 8-oz sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves, crumbled
  • 1 tbsp safflower oil
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt

DIPPING SAUCE

  • 1 to 2 tsp adobo sauce
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp skim milk
  • 1/2 clove garlic, minced

Preparation

  1. Prepare fries: Preheat oven to 425°F. Cut each potato in half crosswise. Cut each half into 1/2-inch slices, then cut slices into 1/2-inch strips (to resemble French fries). Place potatoes in a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, combine paprika, cumin and oregano. Drizzle oil over potatoes. Using a silicone spatula, toss potatoes gently yet thoroughly to coat. Sprinkle paprika mixture evenly over potatoes and toss gently.
  3. Arrange potatoes in a thin layer on a large, foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until tender and golden brown.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare dipping sauce: In a separate small bowl, whisk together all sauce ingredients and refrigerate until serving.
  5. Remove potatoes from oven, sprinkle evenly with salt and serve with dipping sauce.
