Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges

sweet potato wedges

My hubby loves sweet potatoes and fries. This recipe is a nice combo of the two!


2-3 large sweet potatoes

2 tbsp canola oil

3 tbsp corn starch

1 tsp Mexican chili powder

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp smoked paprika

1/2 tsp salt


  1. Cut the sweet potatoes into wedges and soak them in a large bowl of water.
  2. Drain the potatoes and pat dry with a paper towel.
  3. Place the wedges in a bowl and sprinkle the corn starch on top, toss to coat.
  4. Mix the spices together in a small bowl.
  5. Pour the oil on top of the wedges, then add the spices and toss to coat.
  6. Spray two large baking sheets with cooking spray and spread the wedges in a single layer on each one.
  7. Bake in oven at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes, then flip wedges and bake for another 5-10 minutes until the are crisp-tender. (I like to bake mine until the edges start to brown because we like ours a little crispy but you can bake until your personal preference).

These make a great side dish for just about anything! Enjoy!
