baked sweet potato fries + spicy dip

Our house was always big on Super Bowl parties when I was growing up. We’d prop up a huge projection screen and shine the massive burly bodies onto the white backdrop. They were scarishly lifesize that way and occasionally gave you the feeling of being tackled, too. But despite the yearly parties and Patriots fanfare, I was always a fourth-quarter cheerleader. I rarely paid attention to the first three–focusing more on food and friends than blitzes and touchdowns. My attention span has improved a bit–now I’ll tune in for commercial segments and the second half. So I wanted the perfect game day snack this year. These baked fries and spicy dip are easy finger food while being a good alternative to chips + salsa. See full recipe below. And GO PATRIOTS.
