I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, I LOVE potatoes.  Seriously, I could eat them every day.  A few years ago, I decided to make a major effort to no longer eat fast food.  This is when I started Weight Watchers and knew that fast food needed to be out of the picture, for good!  It was hard in the beginning, because I love me some French fries, but as I sit here writing this I can honestly count on one hand the number of times I’ve had fast food in the last 3 years.  It makes me happy that I’ve kicked that habit to the curb and have been on the right food path.  Now don’t get me wrong, I crave French fries at least twice a week.  When I’ve craving my guilty pleasure, I make Sweet Potato Fries with Sriracha Cilantro Aioli.  This is a Weight Watcher friendly recipe and each serving is 5 SmartPoints.

 

Every time I am out to eat and I’m faced with the difficult decision to make (regular fries or sweet potatoes fries), I almost always choose sweet potato fries!  I don’t know what it is about these potatoes, but I just love them as fries.  There are so many different recipes for sweet potato fries; my version is a little spicy and served with an amazing dipping sauce.  Fries deserve a delicious sauce, am I right?!

 

For this recipe, I coat the sweet potatoes in garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, and salt & pepper.  These potatoes are sweet (obviously) so the spices add a really nice flavor to their sweet taste.  Bake them at 450 degrees on a baking sheet for 20 minutes or more depending on how crispy you want them.  I LOVE crispy food so I tend to bake the fries for a bit longer.

The Sriracha Cilantro Aioli sauce probably deserves a separate recipe post in and of itself.  This sauce is awesome y’all and could be good as its own condiment!  The sauce is a mix of reduced fat mayo, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, Sriracha, and honey.  The honey adds a nice sweet tone that really compliments well with the sweet potato fries.  Sweet Potato Fries with Sriracha Cilantro Aioli are my go to side when I really need my French fry fix.  These fries are sweet, spicy, and addictive.  Thank goodness sweet potatoes are not a seasonal vegetable so I can make them year round!

   

 

On another note, I’m happy to say that I can make fries in the comfort of my home, make them whenever I want and eat them whenever I want, without feeling guilty.  I can confidently say that I no longer crave or wish I had fast food fries.  Thank you Weight Watchers!
