Next time you're craving something spicy, give these Mexican Street Fries a go. They are sure to satisfy your french fry addiction while giving you one major healthy kick.
Cinco de Mayo is upon us.
As one of my favorite holidays (because chips and salsa...duh), I am always on the hunt for a new recipe that isn't just your boring tacos or 7-layer dip.
By combining my love for sweet potato fries and Mexican food, I've discovered a really amazing duo. These Mexican Street Fries are anything short of satisfying.
They are baked, not fried, so they are light on the waistline. And by making your own Mexican seasoning, it eliminates the preservatives and extra sodium found in pre-packaged spices.
I paired mine with a spicy chipotle ketchup in order to give it a tasty kick, which took less than 3 minutes to make.
This healthy french fry recipe is easy, absolutely delicious, and of course, healthy AF.

Street Fries (makes 2 servings)
- 1 sweet potato
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt
- handful fresh cilantro
- 1/2 cup organic ketchup
- 1 tbsp Sriracha
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp chipotle seasoning
- 1/2 tbsp worchestire sauce
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut Sweet potato into small slices, about 1/4 inch thick. Place slices into large glass bowl. Put spices and olive oil into bowl and gently mix until evenly coated. Place piece of parchment paper on baking pan. Evenly lay potato slices onto parchment paper. Place pan in oven for 30 minutes; tossing fries after the first 20 minutes in the oven and letting cook an additional 10 minutes. Then, turn off the oven and crack the door open for another 10 minutes (this will help crisp them up).
For the ketchup, place all ingredients into small bowl and whisk together until evenly combined.
