Sweet, smoky and slightly spicy Cajun Sweet Potato Fries make a super delicious and healthy side. The easy to make blue cheese yogurt calms down the spice and makes the fries extra tasty.
Warning: you are about to fall in love with these cajun sweet potato fries you see here. Trust me, it's hard not to. They're covered in tasty cajun spices that are smoky and a little spicy then baked to perfection. Then, as if they're not good enough already, they're served with an easy to make blue cheese dip. *Heaven*
The thing I love about baked sweet potato fries is that they taste like they should be bad for you, but they're totally not. They're loaded with good for you vitamin A, vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber and plenty more to make your body happy. They're nutritional powerhouses disguised as french fries.
Then there's the blue cheese dip. Normally blue cheese dressings are loaded with mayo and about a bazillion calories per serving. I wanted to lighten things up a bit, but keep the rich creaminess that we all love, so I swapped out the oil heavy mayo for some healthy Greek yogurt. I honestly don't know why we don't do this all the time. The end result tastes the same and it's so much better for our bods.
Let's make a pact to make the blue cheese dressing this way from now on, k.

So tell me … what did you do for Super Bowl? Did you have a big party and drink lots of beer and eat lots of nachos? If you did, you're WAY cooler than I am.
Want to know what I did?
I forgot all about it. Seriously. I even posted a pic of some pink, heart-shaped cupcakes on Instagram that are super cute but no one liked. You know, 'cause everyone except for me was watching the game and not checking Instagram for Valentine's desserts. Oh man, it's a little embarrassing.
If I wasn't so oblivious to what's going on around me I would have shared these cajun sweet potato fries with you a few weeks ago so you could have made them for your party. They would have been perfect. Next year let's both make them, with extra blue cheese dip. ‘Cause you know, there's no such thing as too much dip. 🙂
