Sweet Potato Fries with Acai Chili Sauce Recipe

Sweet Potato Fries with Acai Chili Sauce Recipe

This recipe makes more Acai Chili Sauce then you’ll need for the fries, but its spicy-sweet-smoky flavor makes for a superb condiment to have lying around. Store it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks and use it as a dip, toss with cooked vegetables or enjoy as a spread.

INGREDIENTS

2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided

3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into ½-inch fries

Sea salt and ground black pepper

4 large Medjool dates, pitted

1 chipotle chili in adobo sauce + 2 Tbsp. adobo sauce

2 Tbsp. tomato paste

1 tsp. onion powder

2 Tbsp. Navitas Organics Acai Powder

3/4 cup pineapple juice

2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400° F. Divide the fries onto two baking sheets and drizzle each pan with one Tbsp olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, toss the fries well and spread into a flat layer. Roast for 25-30 minutes, tossing halfway through cooking or until fries are golden-brown and crispy on the outside.

Meanwhile, soak the dates in hot water for 10 minutes to soften. Drain, then add to a blender along with the chipotle chili, adobo sauce, tomato paste, onion powder, acai powder, pineapple juice, lime juice, and ½ tsp salt. Blend until completely smooth, adding water to thin, if needed.

Serving Suggestion: Serve the fries with a side of the Acai Chili Sauce for dipping and top with lime juice, fresh cilantro and cashew chevre.
