Spicy sweet potato fries


Sweet potato fries are amazing. Need I say more? They seriously are though! These spicy little fries of deliciousness are my new favourite snack for entertaining and even for dinner… The paprika just adds an extra zing and with the accompaniment of guacamole it is the perfect flavour combination. This meal is super simple and always a crowd pleaser – I mean who doesn’t love fries or avo?



  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into strips
  • olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • 2 ripe avocados, halved and peeled
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 ripe tomato, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime/lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Serves 4


Preheat oven to 220 degrees fan forced.

Line a baking tray with baking paper then place the sweet potato – making sure not to overcrowd. Drizzle oil evenly over and sprinkle the paprika and salt on top.

Bake until sweet potatoes are tender and golden brown, turning occasionally, about 20 minutes.

Whilst the fries are cooking place the avocado in a medium bowl and use a fork to mash until almost smooth.

Add the onion, tomato, chilli and lime juice and use a spoon to mix well. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Serve sweet potato fries hot with a dollop of guacamole on top!

Happy cooking, love Jem x
