These sweet potatoes are cut into thick wedges to allow for a longer baking time – this makes them extra sweet. They are then tossed with a little olive oil, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper – making them the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.

Totally delicious, but when you pair the fries with avocado cream you have a snack/lunch that is in a word, ADDICTING.
