Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

Tonight Josh and I tested out a new recipe!  We both have been trying to eat healthy and LOVE sweet potato fries so we decided to make some.  They came out delicious so I wanted to share the recipe on here in case any of my readers are interested.  We found the recipe on Stephanie Cooks blog.  If you don't know Stephanie Cooks- I highly recommend her!  Many of our regular and favorite meals come from her blog.   http://stephaniecooks.blogspot.com/


Spicy Sweet Potato Fries
Source: Stephanie Cooks Original

Ingredients:
2 large sweet potatoes
2 tsp. canola oil
1-2 tsp. taco seasoning (you can use packaged instead!)
1/2 tsp. Lawry's seasoning salt
1/4 tsp. cajun seasoning
cooking spray

Directions:
1- Preheat the oven to 400.
2- Wash, dry, and peel the potatoes. Slice into even strips.
3- Toss the potatoes and oil in a zipper bag. Toss well to evenly coat.
4- Add seasonings to the bag, toss. (Start off with less that you might want, then add more if you feel it's not enough.)
5- Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Lay fries in an even layer. Bake until browned on top, about 15-20 minutes. Flip. Bake another 15 minutes. (Cooking times will vary based on him thick you can the fries). Cook until soft inside and crispy on the outside.

Josh and I didn't have those specific spices on hand so we used chili powder, italian seasoning, garlic powder, and seasoning salt.  We also didn't have a large ziplock baggie (we struggle...) so we just mixed it in a big bowl.  We added quite a bit of spices (...we didn't measure) and they came out perfectly to our liking!  They really had the perfect spicy/sweet mixture that we were looking for.  Yum!
