Sweet and Spicy Alexia Sweet Potato Fries

July 7, 2011

After being asked to participate in the  Alexia Foods “Reinvent a Classic” contest, I began wracking my brain for tasty ways to jazz up a plain old fry. I’ve still got another idea kicking around in my head, destined for the table tonight. In the meantime, here’s one of the recipes I came up with.  It’s simple and tasty, with both sweet and spicy flavors to satisfy both the sweet-seekers and those who yearn for a little kick.

Alexia Sweet Potato Julienne Fries
Brown Sugar, 1/3 cup
Cumin, 1 teaspoon
Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon
Cayenne, 1/2 teaspoon or more if you want more heat
Black Pepper, 1 teaspoon
Non-Stick Cooking Spray

Combine the sugar and spices in a small bowl.

Toss the frozen fries with the sugar and spice mixture until they’re well-coated.

Lightly spray  a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray so the sugary fries won’t stick.

Spread the fries out in an even layer and pop them into the oven.  Bake at 425 for 20 to 25 minutes, or until they’re nice and crispy.

Serve hot and enjoy!

Sounds like the perfect combo of sweet & salty! I love sweet potato fries (make them at least once a week!) and will definitely be trying this combo next time. Thanks for sharing!

Growing up I was never a sweet potato fan. I was never one as an adult, either. In fact, the only time you would see me eat sweet potatoes was at Thanksgiving when they were covered with marshmallows. And truthfully, it was the toasted marshmallows on top that got me to eat them.

A few weeks ago we were at a fair and after seeing everyone walking around with Sweet Potato Fries, I finally tried them. I fell IN LOVE! They were so good and I was so annoyed with myself that for so many years I turned up my nose to them. I will always love a regular potato most of all, but a sweet potato fry has defenitely made me find another love.

These look so good and super easy. Definitely going to give these a try!

Thanks for sharing, Karen.

Being a Southern girl, sweet potatoes or yams have always been a favorite but I love the sweet potato fry trend of the last few years.

I’m glad you’re discovering them!

You’d have to contact Alexa, not me.

These look great, but they also look like a lot of work when you could just buy the Alexia Spice Sweet Chipotle Seasoned Julienne Fries. Have you tried them yet? They are absolutely DIVINE!

I haven’t tried them but I’ll look for them. I don’t think they were around when I came up with these? Thanks for the heads-up.
