You can’t have one without the other.

Peanut butter and Marshmallow fluff.

Wine and cheese.

Burger and fries.

Sweet Potato Curly Fries with Chipotle Lime Aioli  | The Housewife in Training FilesWhat would a burger be without fries? Devastating to think about. You can bet your bottom dollar that if sweet potatoes are on the menu that they will be ordered. And completely devoured. They are sweet, salty, crispy and amazingly delicious.

Recently I bought a Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer, and it has become our favorite kitchen gadget by far! The possibilities are endless. A blog I often turn to is Ali, over at Inspiralized; she has the most mouth-watering recipes if you need some extra inspiration!

Sweet Potato Curly Fries with Chipotle Lime Aioli  | The Housewife in Training FilesAs I mentioned in my last post, we have become quite fond of a local burger joint. Rustic, modern, industrial type decor with out of this world creative burgers, sandwiches and wide array of side items to compliment any meal.  I fell in love there, twice. With their crunchy and sugary sweet potato fries along with their shoestring onion straws. Ahhh meh gawd. Light, airy, crunchy, salty. They serve a mound of these babies to you and luckily it feels like a never ending pasta bowl as I barely made a dent in them regardless the feeling of needing to be rolled outta there!

The next morning, my wheels started turning. I spotted my spiralizer and away I went on my sweet potatoes. Homemade curly fries are restaurant quality with their flavor and crunch, yet easier on the wallet and waist line. I bake them at a high temp to ensure an extra crisp.

Just as my chipotle lime aioli paired perfectly with my cajun chicken sliders, it makes these sweet potato curly fries taste a like a million bucks. That’s a win in my books!

      I keep tell ya! I am just tempting you with every recipe…! And sweet potatoes are another one of those ingredients that I buy in bulk and hoard for the perfect recipe since I can’t get enough!

    How difficult was it putting the sweet potatoes through the spiralizer?? What kind of spiralizer did you use? From reviews that I have read in the past I thought because of the denseness of a sweet potato, they are difficult to put through the spiralizer??? I sure would love to give this recipe a try.

      I am sorry to hear that! I have a couple of thoughts on why they didn’t turn out…the larger size needs longer to cook to get crispy, or you spaced them too close on the pan so they steamed rather than dried out. I hope you try them again but I suggest using the smaller spirals to get that extra crisp!

    Man, so simple and good! Love your take on aioli, easy and healthy. Have had some chipotles hanging out for a while, now I know what to do with them. Just gotta go get a spiralizer, after all the cool stuff I’ve seen made with them, I can’t believe I haven’t already got one! Thanks!
