Equipment

  • Ziploc Bag
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Baking Sheet

Ingredients

  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Peel and cut sweet potatoes into wedges and place in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag.
  • Drizzle olive oil over sweet potatoes in bag and shake until evenly coated.
  • In a small bowl, combine chili powder, garlic powder, cinnamon, salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle seasonings over sweet potatoes, seal bag and shake again until evenly coated.
  • Spread seasoned potato wedges on a baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until potato wedges are soft.
  • Heat oven to high broil, and broil potato wedges for 1-2 minutes or until crispy.

Notes

  • You could leave the skins on the sweet potatoes, but the seasoning coats the potato wedges better if they are peeled.
  • You could leave the cinnamon out of this recipe, but the mixture of seasonings is delicious!
  • You will want to be sure to spread the potato wedges in a single layer - check that they aren’t stacked on top of each other or they will stick together and won’t crisp up as well as they cook.
