Homemade baked sweet potato fries, while not quite as crispy as regular fries, can easily satisfy any cravings that you might have for fast food. In this recipe the sweet potatoes are tossed with chilli powder and cayenne to make them spicy. The cooking time differs with every oven, so keep a close eye on the fries while they are baking. Remove any crispy fries from the pan to allow the rest continue to bake.
