A couple weeks ago, I received a little surprise in the mail from Foodbuzz's Tastemaker Program! A coupon for a bag of Ore-Ida Sweet Potato Fries! Along with the coupon was a letter from Foodbuzz asking me to make something delicious with them! I thought long and hard about making something spectacular and outside the box. However, since the fries are meant to save you time, I decided on making something simple instead, using store-bought ingredients.
I decided on coating the fries with a salty and spicy blend and making an avocado aioli with guacamole, mayonnaise, and fresh cilantro to dip them in.
What I like most about these fries is how crispy they turned out! I typically hesitate buying frozen fries because I've yet to find ones that aren't soggy. Although I baked these in the oven, they tasted like they were straight from the deep fryer!
