These spicy sweet potato fries are oven baked but deliciously crispy!


  • 1 large sweet potato (about 1lb)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder (depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Slice the sweet potato into thin, even slices
  3. In a large bowl or zipper-top bag, toss the sweet potato slices with cornstarch
  4. Toss with olive oil until evenly coated
  5. In a small dish, whisk together the garlic powder, onion powder, chipotle chili powder, salt, and paprika
  6. Sprinkle the spices over the sweet potato slices and continue to toss in the bag until evenly coated
  7. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray
  8. Spread the sweet potato fries in a single layer on the sheet
  9. Bake for 15 minutes then flip and continue to bake for 15-20 minutes or until browned on both sides


  • Cut the fries as evenly as possible, so they’ll all cook in the same amount of time.
  • You may need to spread the fries out onto two different baking sheets to be sure you can fit them into a single layer.
  • When you’re flipping the fries halfway through the baking time, swap the placement of the baking trays, for more even cooking.
