Baked Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries w/ Skinny Ranch Dip

Ingredients:

For the sweet potatoes:
  • 4 sweet potatoes, about 5″ long, peeled & cut into ¼” fries
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground chipotle powder (if you can’t find, taco seasoning works great too!)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
For the skinny ranch dip:
  • ¼ cup light mayo (I like the olive oil mayo version personally)
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dill
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley
  • 4 tablespoons fresh chopped green onions
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

Combine all of your Skinny Ranch Dip ingredients, cover, & refrigerate for flavors to marry. (at least an hour)

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl, toss the sweet potatoes with the olive oil, salt, garlic powder, & chipotle powder (or taco seasoning). Spread the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, avoiding crowding. Bake for 15 minutes, flip – and bake an additional 15 minutes.

Serve with Skinny Ranch Dip.
