Ingredients

  • For the Potatoes:

  • cooking spray

  • 4

    medium (about 7 oz each) sweet potatoes, skin on

  • 1

    tbsp olive oil

  • tsp paprika

  • pinch cayenne pepper

  • 1

    tsp garlic powder

  • Coarse salt and fresh-cracked pepper

  • For topping:

  • ½

    bell pepper, sliced thin

  • cup sharp shredded cheddar cheese (I used Cabot)

  • ½

    cup Pepper Jack light cheese

  • 1

    medium scallion, chopped

  • pickled jalapeño slices

  • 4

    tbsp tomato, diced small

  • 1

    tbsp chopped cilantrosliced black olives, optional

  • salsa, for dipping

Directions

Heat the oven to 425°F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with oil. Cut the sweet potatoes in half, the place the cut side down on a cutting board and carefully cut each half into 3 equal sized wedges. This will give you 24 wedges total. In a large bowl, combine potatoes and oil; toss well. Season with paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, salt and pepper and toss to coat. Place potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheets and bake in the center of the oven, uncovered for about 9 to 10 minutes on each side. Remove from oven and place fries into four small oven-safe dishes (or one large dish for sharing), top with bell peppers, cheddar and jack cheese and return to oven for about 2 minutes, or until the cheese melts. Finish with scallions, jalapeño, tomato, cilantro and black olives. Serve with salsa on the side.
