Garlicky Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries. Just let that sink in for a minute. A little bit sweet, a little bit spicy, and a whole lotta flavorful!
I know sweet potatoes aren’t everyone’s favorite. And although I truly love them (like, mad passionate love them), usually when I’m making oven fries, I’ll opt for the more traditional russets. But then I had this idea…
I was like “Hey! What if I took a sweet potato fry and made it kinda spicy?” and then I was like “That’s a great idea, you’re sooo smart! And pretty!” And that’s how the Garlicky Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries were born. I used a McCormick Grill Mates seasoning to keep it simple, and these made the best side to go with the Sweet Earth frozen burgers that had come earlier that day.
The Santa Fe flavor was my absolute favorite, it’s what I served with the fries. The teriyaki I heated up in a pan, chopped up and used to top a salad, and the Za’atar I served in a pita with some hummus and sliced cucumber- made a great take-to-work lunch.
Sweet Earth is great. They make a TON (literally, a ton) of vegan foods, both refrigerated and frozen. They have burgers, breakfast burritos, seitan, bacon, soups, pies… all vegetarian and many vegan.
Speaking of breakfast burritos…
I could probably live on nothing but their Curry Tiger burrito for at least a couple months before getting sick of it 🙂 Check out their store locator app and pick some up, ASAP. I’ve seen their products at Target and Sprouts, they’re pretty widely available.
And don’t forget about these fries!

- 1 large sweet potato
- Olive oil
- 1+ tablespoon McCormick Grill Mates 'Chipotle & Roasted Garlic' seasoning
- Preheat oven to 400, and lightly oil a baking sheet.
- Slice the potato into fries, and arrange on the pan. Drizzle with just a little bit of the oil, and work the fries with your hands to make sure they're all covered. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the seasoning and stir a bit more with your hands.
- Bake for about 30 minutes, flipping once. Taste and add more seasoning and S&P as needed.
