Roasted Sweet Potato Fries with sweet and spicy Cinnamon dip

I’m not sure when Sweet Potato Fries were created, but I’m so glad they were! I love going out to eat and ordering them at nearly every restaurant!

Last fall I went to a cousin’s wedding in New York and ate the most amazing sweet potato fries ever. Prior to this dining experience I had been eating them dipped in ketchup, you know, like a regular fry.

But here, they served them with a super sweet and creamy Cinnamon dip. Oh yes please.

I came home from that weekend and had been craving these fries for months. No matter where we ate I always tried some in hopes that they would taste similar. No luck. I finally tried making them at home in December.

I’ve had this delicious recipe to share with you for some time now! Sadly, last week I went back to New York for my Aunt’s funeral. Besides spending some quality time with family, I had the opportunity to try those fries again. I’m happy to report “I nailed it.”

My dip is a little lighter, since I used Greek Yogurt as the base. I’m pretty sure the one they serve is made with cream cheese. I loved it, but am quite happy at keeping this recipe a bit on the healthy side! I also added a little red pepper to the dip, so while it’s sweet it also has a hint of spicy!

As for the fries, feel free to adjust the red pepper to your liking. The amount listed is enough to taste a nice zing in each bite, but not too much that children (or spice weanies) won’t eat.

Also, I like my fries crispy. I roast mine a few minutes longer, so the edges are super browned! Adjust the baking time for your preference!

This is one side dish you won’t feel guilty in serving your family this New Year! ENJOY!

Sweet Potato Fries

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Yield: serves 3-4

Spicy roasted sweet potato fries with a creamy Cinnamon dipping sauce.


    For the Fries:
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, washed
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • For the Cinnamon dip:
  • 6oz plain greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • pinch red pepper flakes


  1. Slice sweet potatoes lengthwise (with skin on) into long strips. The smaller they are the sliced, the crispier they will cook. In a large bowl toss the sweet potato strips with olive oil and seasonings.
  2. Place on a large baking sheet in a single layer and roast in a 450 degree oven. Turn every 15 minutes. Mine cooked up crispy in 45 minutes.
  3. While the potatoes are cooking, blend the dip ingredients together until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve!
  4. Serve the fries warm with the cool dip. ENJOY.

    We are in my personal last-meal territory. I have an sweet potato fry fixation (I order them everywhere too), but have never gone the cinnamon route for my dips. Great idea Aimee!

    Love sweet potato fries, but have never had them with a sweet dip. Genius idea! Love how you made them a “liitle” healthier for you as well.

    We looove sweet potato fries and yours look so good – I love how crispy they are and I would’ve never thought of a cinnamon yogurt dip, what a great idea!

    I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of your Aunt. Always hard to lose those we love.

    I have a sweet potato just waiting for me to eat it. I think I will be trying your recipe. Although my husband is not a fan of sweet potatoes, he loves fries and especially if they’re crisp. If it weren’t for the darn orange color, I might be able to fool him. LOL I love the spicy touch too. May even add a little more.

      Thank you Sylvia (ironically, that’s my Aunt’s name!!). Good luck with convincing your husband to LOVE these!

    I’m a big fan of sweet and savory flavor combos, so these fries and dipping sauce have my name written all over them! Is it lunchtime yet??

    Sweet potato fries are my favorite, and I love the sound of that Greek yogurt dip! These look incredibly delicious!

    All I can say is, “I want some”. I wish my family liked sweet potatoes, oh well, I guess that means more for me!!!

    I have recently fell head over heels for sweet potatoes. These “fries” look great! I really like the sweetness of the potatoes and then the salt. And that sauce – I think I found something else to fall for! :)
