Turn your fries up a notch or three with a sweet-spicy glaze: rich ghee, mouth-tingling chipotle peppers, and just a hint of lime juice. The honey tones it all down with just enough sweetness, and the result will have you licking the extra sauce off the roasting pan. If you really want a plate of sweet potato fries that kick it up to 11, here’s the answer.
You can cut your potatoes into a more classic French fry shape, or into thicker wedges, depending on how you like them. Or for a more fork-friendly dish with the same flavor, just chop them into bite-sized pieces.
Fries with burgers is a classic combination, but these would also go well with all kinds of meals: try them with Southwest-inspired pork chops, steak, or your favorite kind of chicken. Of course, fries are also an ever-popular hit with the kids, and a perfect way to get some more vegetables and safe starches into the daily rotation.
