Loaded Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

Makes: 4 servings

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:
Fries
• 3 lbs sweet potatoes
• 3 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
• 1 tablespoon chili powder
• 3 tablespoons cornstarch
• 1 ½ teaspoon kosher salt

Crema
• ½ cup sour cream
• 1 garlic clove
• ¼ cup fresh lime juice
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• ½ teaspoon cumin
• ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Toppings
• 1 red onion, diced
• 2 tomatoes, diced
• 15-oz can black beans, drained
• 1 green bell pepper, sliced
• 2 avocados, sliced
• Cilantro, chopped

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

Wash the sweet potatoes. Keeping the skin on, slice off the ends of each potato, then slice the potato in half lengthwise. Turn it cut side down and slice a ¼ inch piece. Lay the slice on its side and cut in into several long strips, depending on how big your potato is. Repeat until all fries have been cut.

Place the potato slices in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. In a small bowl, combine garlic powder, chili powder, cornstarch and salt. Mix thoroughly to combine then sprinkle evenly over fries. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and spread fries on the paper, not overcrowding.

Bake 15 minutes, then flip and bake an additional 10-20 minutes until fries are dry and slightly browned.

While the fries are baking, combine garlic lime juice, sour cream, olive oil, cumin and kosher salt in a small bowl and stir to combine.

When fries are done, cool for a few minutes then transfer to a platter and top with all toppings right in the middle.
