recipe adapted from Bon Appetit 

  • 4-5 sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 lb.), unpeeled, each cut lengthwise into 8 wedges

  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 450°. Toss potato wedges, oil, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper on a foil-lined large rimmed baking sheet to evenly coat; season potatoes with salt and pepper.

Roast, turning once, until wedges are golden brown and crisp, 25-30 minutes.

  • 3-4 dashes hot sauce
  • salt & pepper to taste

In a mini food processor, process avocados with lime juice, hot sauce and season with salt & pepper. Adjust seasoning accordingly. Transfer dip to a bowl and serve alongside the sweet potato fries.
