Seasoned sweet potato fries are one of my favorite sides and appetizers. I especially love then when they are served with a delicious dipping sauce – although I would never pass them up with ketchup either! Obviously. These sweet potato fries are seasoned to perfection and served alongside a Mexican-inspired spicy guacamole dipping sauce. You know I love my guacamole. This fry and dipping sauce combo is gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and top 8 allergen free!
The first time I had seasoned sweet potato fries was when I was in college and dating my husband. I’m not sure how I went so long without trying them! There was a super popular restaurant, called Sammy’s, in the city we lived in. It was mostly famous for their pie shakes – a shake that had a whole piece of pie blended in! My first taste of sweet potato fries was at this restaurant – and I didn’t even like them at first!
Now I love sweet potato fries and as much as I love normal fries I would choose sweet potato fries over normal fries any day! They have so much flavor.
These fries are baked in the oven so they are healthier and use less oil than the fried version. However, I do dream of getting an air fryer as soon as I have a place to put one! Small house/small kitchen problems but I’m not complaining!

If you aren’t sure if your guests will care for the jalapenos in the guacamole dipping sauce then just leave them out! It’s still so good without the jalapenos. Alternatively, make two versions! One without jalapenos and one with. Because it’s also so good with the jalapenos!

How to Make Seasoned Sweet Potato Fries
Seasoned sweet potato fries are quite simple to make! Begin by washing and peeling your sweet potatoes. Cut them into long fry-like sticks.
*TIP* If you want to help prevent your potatoes from getting too soft in the oven, soak them in cold water first! Simply fill a large bowl with the raw fries, cover with cold water, and let sit in the fridge for 30 minutes. Drain the water and pat dry.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix together the olive oil, chili powder, garlic powder, paprika, seasoning salt, and pepper. Toss the sweet potato fries with the seasoning and arrange on the baking sheet in a single layer. Bake at 415 degrees for around 18 minutes.
While the fries are baking, make the spicy guacamole dip. Halve the avocados, take out the seeds, and scoop the avocado out of the peel. I love to mash my avocados in my Kitchen Aid. However, a bowl and potato masher or fork will work as well.
Mash the avocado and mix it with the lime juice and spices until it is smooth and creamy. Add the chopped jalapeno, tomato, and onion if desired.
Add the fries to a serving plate and the spicy guacamole dip to a bowl. Serve while the sweet potato fries are still nice and hot.
These seasoned sweet potato fries are soooo good with the spicy guacamole. It goes fast! You may need to double the recipe!
