"These fries are really good, and the dip is to die for! You would never think to put avocado dip on a sweet potato fry, but... oh my is it a yummy treat!! We ate these and I wanted more when tray was empty. Overcome the skepticism and give it a try! "

Really delish! I was so happy I did't have to peel the sweet potatoes! Man it is hard to cut raw sweet potatoes. You almost need a machete! I did finally get all the fries cut. Cookiedog is so right! the avocado dip is to DIE FOR! I will use it on sandwiches! MMMMMM, with roast beef--divine. P
