I still can't believe after eating these that they're pretty damn healthy! Total comfort food. It felt like such a treat when I was eating these fries, delicious!
For the sauce, I used Plant-based plain yogurt and chipotle pepper adobo sauce with a pinch of salt. Very simple.
The salsa, beans, and the sauce can be made ahead of time so all you have to do is prepare the fries.
Great for a quick fun dinner or a casual get together! I hope you enjoy!
For the sauce:
3/4 Cup of plant-based plain yogurt
1 Tbsp. of adobo sauce
Pinch of sea salt
For the beans:
1-15 oz. can of black beans drained
2 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 Cup of frozen corn
For the salsa:
1 red pepper diced
1 medium red onion diced
1 jalapeno ribbed, seeded, and diced
1 bunch of cilantro chopped
1 tomato diced
1 avocado diced
1 lime juiced
salt to taste
For the fries:
3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/2 inch wide slices
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
sprinkle of cayenne pepper.
Preheat the over to 425 degrees.
Toss the sliced sweet potatoes with olive oil. Place on a baking sheet (You might need two) in one layer and sprinkle with salt and cayenne pepper. Place in oven and bake for 12 minutes. Flip and bake for another 12-18 minutes. Do not add the cayenne pepper if you don't like it hot.
While the fries are baking prepare all the toppings.
In a medium fry pan on medium heat, add a small amount of olive oil, heat through. Add minced garlic and the beans. Heat through and mash the beans a little bit. Add the frozen corn and cook until there is no fluid in the pan. Remove from heat and set aside.
For the salsa, place all the ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl. mix together and add the juice from the lime immediately so the avocado doesn't start to brown. Add a small amount of salt to taste, mix together and set aside.
For the sauce, in a small bowl mix together the yogurt and the adobo sauce. You may need to add salt but it's not necessary. definitely taste first and keep in mind the other parts of the dish have added salt.
Place the fries on a large platter or you can prepare on individual plates. Add the bean mixture evenly. Add the salsa trying to avoid any of the juices at the bottom. Top with the adobo sauce and you're ready to dive in!
