Baked Chili Lime Sweet Potato Fries
Oven baked sweet potato fries seasoned with chili, lime and garlic has become a favorite bring-along BBQ side. The secret tip to having your fries stay plump, soft in the middle yet crispy on the outside along with cutting down on baking time is to parboil first.
Ingredients
  • 4 Large sweet potatoes peeled
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon chili lime margarita sea salt blend OR 3 Tablespoons lime juice, 1 teaspoon chili powder and 1 teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)
Instructions
Preheat your oven to 350° f.The secret step: Bring a large pot of water with 1/2 teaspoon of salt added to a rolling boil. Parboiling baked french fries, especially sweet potatoes which are notoriously hard, helps them cook faster without burning on the outside. It also removes a lot of the starch from the potatoes, helping to prevent them from sticking to the pan. It really makes a world of difference when making baked fries.Cut sweet potatoes into steak or shoestring fries and add them to the boiling water. As soon as tiny bubbles appear remove and drain the sweet potatoes. They should still seem crisp. Coat a pan with the coconut oil and spread the sweet potatoes out in a single layer. Pop into the oven for 35 minutes. About half way through, at around the 10 minute mark, turn the fries over and allow to continue baking.After the 35 minutes they should feel soft inside and done but to further crisp and brown them, turn your oven up to 450° f degrees and allow to bake for an additional 15 minutes. Steak fries might take a tad longer.
