Spicy Seasoned Sweet Potato Fries....

Here's a fun twist to a good ol' classic, a winter staple in our house- Baked Sweet Potato Fries! Every winter we joyfully receive a 20 pound box of sweet potatoes from my brother-on-law, so we like to try out different variations to change it up and make the 20 pounds enjoyable all season long!

Just like the original recipe, wash and scrub your potatoes (leave the skins on, lots of good stuff for you there) and cut them into french fry sticks. (you could also cut them into cubes, chunks, or chips). Then toss them in a bowl with some expeller pressed coconut oil, sea salt, pepper, some cumin, chili powder, and garlic powder. If you wanna turn it up a notch, add a pinch of cayenne pepper. Toss thoroughly and spread out  in a single layer onto a cookie sheet or roasting pan lined with parchment paper. Bake on 400 for 25- 35 minutes depending how your like your fries!

These were perfectly paired with a bowl of Vegetable Chili, a fun alternative to corn bread!
