Better then Checkers Seasoned Fries

There is no denying that I have a "thing" for french fries. But new times call for new fries, so instead of having those heart clogging, cholesterol rising, no good for me french fries I now have a completely new best friend. Seasoned Sweet Potato fries. They are soooo good. Thanks to my friend Jenny W's recipe, I got to try a completely new and healthy way of viewing these yummy treats. Thanks Jen!! I don't have these every day, but it defiantly settles my craving for fries whenever I get them. So here you go and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.


1/2 bag prepackaged sweet potato fries (you can take the time to cut them up fresh, but I've tried both ways and it's exactly the same results. So I save myself alot of time just by buying the packaged type)

1/2 package low sodium taco seasoning

3 tablespoons olive oil

coarse salt as desired.


1. Pre-heat oven to 450 F.

2. Mix all ingredients in bowl

3. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray or drizzle olive oil.

4. Spread seasoned fries in a single layer and place in oven

5. Bake for 45- 50 minutes.

* I'm still trying to get them toasty, without burning them. SP maintain a lot of moisture and unless you actually fry them in oil then won't get that crunchiness. But I would sacrifice crunchy for healthy any day. If you have any suggestions to get crispy baked SP fries, please let me know. Hope you enjoy these!!
