Sweet Potato Chili Cheese Fries

Looking for a NEW twist on a classic southern favorite, this is it.  This easy side dish is soooo good, we wanted to run through our flooded streets here in Memphis, proclaiming the deliciousness!!  With everything we have been dealing with, it was sooo comforting to enjoy something so simple.  We definitely needed this comfort food.  And these little guys are prefect served along side some creamy honey mustard dressing.  I think I will make up another batch tonight!!!  Wanna take it to the next level?  Well, next I am thinking about making up a batch of my chili sauce to pour down on top of these and serve them at our next sporting event party...oh YUM!!

1 (20 oz bag) frozen sweet potato fries
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cinnamon
your favorite melting cheese (used Monterey Jack)
salt & pepper to taste
Served with Honey Mustard dressing

1.  Preheat over according to package directions.  

2  Place frozen sweet potatoes (unseasoned, you will season them halfway through the cooking process) on a baking sheet.  Cook them half as long as the directions say, take them out and season them accordingly, you can add more or less depending on tastes.  Ours were seasoned pretty liberally but you can use what's above as a guideline.  

3.  Return them to the oven to complete the baking.  

4.  Remove them, sprinkle with your favorite melting cheese.  I tossed them back in the oven on broil to melt it off and it worked great!!!  


  1. I am so impressed by your creativity! I love sweet potato fries and can't wait to try these :)

  2. Oh yum! Glad the rising waters didn't stop you from enjoying something so delightful as these lovely fries. *-* What a great idea!
