Spicy baked yam fries.  Soooo good. Nuff said.

Cut a whole big yam or sweet potato (leaving skin on) into fry strips.  For seasoning you’ll need:

Garlic powder
Sea salt
Chili powder
Cayenne powder
Chipolte Chili Powder (McCormick brand)

The amount you’ll need depends on the amount of fries have.  Go heavy on the garlic, pepper, chili powder and chipolte (2 tsp each)….and easier on the salt, cayenne(1/2 to 1 tsp).  Do this is a large bowl, it coats them much better.  The place on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray and bake in a 400-425 degree oven for approx 25-30 min (flipping them halfway through)

If need a dip, a low cal ranch would suffice, or even some low fat mayo mixed with garlic powder and herbs to make an aioli!!
