Taste of 2008! This is a nice change from regular fries and these definitely will tempt your taste buds. Served along with a nice spicy chipotle mayonnaise it satisfies many cravings! Although these fries are done in the oven if you prefer you can deep fry for a more crispy effect. Enjoy!

This dip is amazing with sweet potato fries. My addition to it was 1 clove of minced garlic and increased the cumin to 1 tsp. It's certainly a family favourite.
Delicious! I think the real star here is the spicy mayo dip. Oh my gosh, it is so yummy! I used Vegenaise (a vegan version of mayo..it is surprisingly good). I couldn't get the chipotle in a adobo sauce but found a small can of chipotle in adobo salsa - so I used 2 T. of that and it was fantastic. No need to chop up a chipotle! The sweet potato fries were very tasty with the spices, but I think I'll just do them plain with olive oil and kosher salt next time. I think that would go perfectly with the dipping sauce. By the way, I ended up using the leftover dip as a salad dressing!
My family had an OMG foodie moment. I followed the recipe except for adding a little brown sugar when mixing with the oil. The complexity of the flavors...fennel, oregano, coriander, combined with the chipotle mayo was phenomenal. Made me wish I were born Mexican. Buena! Hijole!! Don Quixote!!! ...or something like that.
