Well, I’ve a solution for you.  Go ahead and bookmark this recipe because the next time you crave those nasty-filled deep fried delight, come back and find this page.

These polenta-crusted, oven baked sweet potato fries will beat your French fries fixation every time with it’s deliciously clean crispiness.  Unlike regular white potatoes, sweet potatoes are packed with vitamin B6, C, D, iron, magnesium & more.  This means that they can help build healthy bones, heart, nerves, skin, teeth and immune system.  Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet-tasting but because they’re low on the glycemic index, they help to ensure balanced and regular source of energy without the blood sugar spikes that’s often linked to fatigue and weight gain.  Plus, they’re fat-free, relatively low in sodium and have fewer calories than white potatoes.

To top all this crunchy goodness off, the 1 minute creamy Chipotle dip makes for a perfect sweet & spicy condiment that will have you saying no to Ketchup & mayo.  Kiss those greasy fries good-bye and say hi to something way sweeter for both your lips and your hips.
