MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2013

My family loved this recipe - these are the best Sweet Potato Fries I've ever made!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 22, 2012

This is spicy recipe, but the sweetness of the potato balances it out. I didn't make the dip. It's like a party in your mouth!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 6, 2011

This is an extremely spicy recipe, particularly the dip, so you'll need something to cool your mouth down. The dip is more than twice what is needed for the fries. By themselves, the fries aren't too bad.
