Baked Sweet Potato Wedges with Chipotle Aioli

Baked Sweet Potato Wedges with Chipotle Aioli

Who doesn’t crave sweet potato fries every now and then?

The salty-sweet combo gets me every time.

And they are especially delicious when served with aioli.

Classic aioli, pesto aioli, herbed garlic aioli, or my personal favorite, chipotle aioli.

Sweet Potato Wedges with Chipotle Aioli

Have you tried the slightly more tender (and easier to make) sweet potato wedges?

I mean, it doesn’t get much easier. You don’t even have to peel the sweet potatoes! Simply slice into wedges, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, and bake for about 30 minutes.

Voila! You’ve got a giant plate of creamy golden wedges, just waiting for dipping.

For reals, don’t skip the sauce. It’s everything.

I lightened it up a little by using half Greek yogurt, half mayo, and kicked up the flavor by like 10 notches by stirring in canned chipotle peppers, lime, and fresh garlic.

It’s so good, you may find yourself using the fries as a glorified aioli scooper. (Hey, I won’t judge).

Servings: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 extra large sweet potatoes, or 3 medium-large (enough to fill 1 baking sheet when cut up)
  • Generous drizzle of olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons minced canned chipotle peppers or more, to taste
  • Juice of 1/4 lime
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Wash and scrub the sweet potatoes until they are clean. Pat them dry with paper towels. 

  3. Cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, then cut each half into lengthwise wedges. If your sweet potatoes are extra long, cut them in half cross-wise first, before you slice into wedges. 

  4. Place the potato wedges on the parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle generously with olive oil, and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Toss with your hands to coat, and spread the wedges out evenly.

  5. Place the potatoes in the oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the potatoes are browned and tender.

  6. As the potatoes bake, make the aioli dipping sauce by stirring together the Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, chipotle, lime juice, and garlic. Let rest in the refrigerator until the wedges are done. 

  7. When the potatoes are done, remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Serve right away with the chipotle aioli.
