Baked Sweet Potato Fries + Spicy Ketchup

Baked Sweet Potato Fries + Spicy Ketchup

I don’t know if I could honestly say I like sweet potato fries more than regular fries, but these creole spiced sweet potato fries are delicious.  I’ve been making them off and on for about 8 years.  I have also been enjoying sriracha sauce for 13 years now because a restaurant I worked at during college served it with shrimp cocktail (brilliant).  But I never considered mixing sriracha with ketchup until I made a frittata recently and couldn’t decide whether I wanted to douse it with ketchup or sriracha.  So I mixed them together and never looked back.  Try it!
