Ingredients

Fries

3
large dark-orange sweet potatoes (3 lb), peeled
2
teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1
teaspoon ground cumin

Sauce

2/3
cup Yoplait® Fat Free plain yogurt (from 2-lb container)
1/4
cup chili sauce
1
teaspoon soy sauce

  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. Cut each potato crosswise into about 4-inch chunks, then cut lengthwise into 1/2x1/2-inch strips.
  • 2 In large resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix Cajun seasoning and cumin. Add potatoes; toss until evenly coated. In ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan, arrange potatoes in single layer.
  • 3 Bake 35 to 40 minutes, turning once, until potatoes are lightly browned and tender. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix all sauce ingredients. Serve sauce with fries.

Expert Tips

Just one 4-ounce sweet potato exceeds the Daily Value for vitamin A and provides fiber to boot!

A hot oven and placing the potatoes in a single layer on a shallow pan is important for crispiest potatoes. If potatoes are layered, they'll steam and will be soft.
