Y is for ‘Baked Chipotle Yam Fries’

{image and recipe via skinny taste // image embellished by nook + nest}

I have never been a fan of candied yams….weird, huh? Something about the texture and saccharine sweetness makes me want to gag. However, if you prepare a savory yam dish,  I am sold. Something tells me these fries will not disappoint.

Servings: 2
1 yam or sweet potato, (about 5" long),  peeled and cut into 1/4" fries
2 tsp olive oil
sea salt
ground chipotle chile
garlic powder
1.       Preheat oven to 425°.
2.       In a medium bowl, toss sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt, garlic powder and chipotle chile powder.
3.       Spread potatoes on a baking sheet. Avoid crowding so potatoes get crisp. Bake 15 minutes. Turn and bake an additional 10-15 minutes. Ovens may vary so keep an eye on them and be sure to cut all the potatoes the same size to ensure even cooking.
