Spicy Sweet Potato Fries With Chipotle Mayonnaise Recipe

May 4th, 2016

Sugar and spice and everything nice—that’s the secret to our take on sweet potato fries. Cumin and cayenne add just enough heat to bring out the natural sweetness of the potatoes—a little coconut sugar sprinkled on top adds even more complexity. Dunk them in zesty Primal Kitchen Chipotle-Lime Mayonnaise for even more zing.
