Here is a recipe from Gina's Skinny Recipe blog that paired deliciously with the Skinny Sloppy Joes. The natural sweetness of the sweet potato was ignited with chipotle chili seasoning and a little garlic powder. This took 10 minutes of prep time, 30 minutes to cook.

- 1 sweet potato (about 5-7 inches long)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- salt to taste
- 1 tbsp chipotle chile powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
Start be preheating your oven to 450 degrees. Peel your sweet potato and slice into strips - I found it easier to cut the sweet potato in half (width wise) and then cut vertical strips for the fries.
In a medium size bowl, add the olive oil, salt, chile powder and the garlic powder, stirring well. Toss the potatoes in the oil until well coated.
Arrange the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and put in the oven for 15 minutes.
Take out and flip, then bake for another 15 minutes. Keep an eye on the potatoes, they cook differently according to size.
After an additional 15 minutes, if the fries are not crispy enough, turn on the broiler for 3-5 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes and enjoy!
