Baked Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries

Happy National French Fry Day!

Celebrate this day with a healthier spin on fries.  They're baked to reduce the fat content and sweet potatoes for an overall nutritional boost!  Just 2 simple steps is all it takes...and one of them is to turn on your oven :).  Of course, if you want to whip up a quick sauce to serve alongside then you add a few more steps but you can do that while they bake.  I just mixed some honey, chipotle powder, and a pinch of salt into some plain Greek Yogurt.  Ketchup is also a simpler and delicious option.

Watch out, they're addicting!  So much so that I literally dove right into my fresh-out-of-the-oven batch nearly burning my fingers and forgot to take a picture!!  Sorry about that :P.  If you really need to see a picture to drool over, check out Gina's site :).

Two Years Ago: Jamie's Minestrone - One of my all-time favorite soups...nevermind that there's a heatwave.  Now that I'm in a CSA share again this year this might be the *perfect* recipe for using my organic farm fresh veggies!
