Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges

These are a good twist on normal oven fries. I like to use chipotle powder, as I think the smokiness adds a nice touch. But I like things spicy. It might be a bit much for some.

4 sweet potatoes
cooking spray
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
1/8 tsp. black pepper

Preheat oven to 500.

Peel potatoes, cut each lengthwise into strips. Place potatoes in a bowl, coat with cooking spray sugar mixture. Toss to evenly coat.

Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with non-stick aluminum foil.

Bake for 8 minutes, turn, bake for another 8 minutes.
