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.
