Can I get fries with that?

There hasn’t been a whole lot of inventive cooking going on lately.  If it’s quick, it’s what’s for dinner these days.

I was selected through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program to receive a sample of an Alexia Foods product. I chose their delicious Spicy Sweet Potato Fries. Plain sweet potato fries are o.k., but add the chipotle seasoning and I’m a happy camper.

I set the oven at 400 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes and my side dish was ready…

I love that my new french fry holders came with little paper inserts that explain a bit about the history of the french fry. Thanks Bon for my gift.

I whipped up a little dipping sauce. Light sour cream, light mayo, chili powder and garlic powder and the combo did the trick. You really don’t need to dip them in anything, but I had to fill my new sauce holder with something 😉 – and a little cooling action from the heat was also nice.

Now through March 30, 2012 – you have the chance to help select the next Alexia french fry flavor by voting in their “Reinvent a Classic” campaign on Facebook. Just visit: and click on the “Reinvent a Classic” tab to vote for one of four gourmet french fry flavors created by other food bloggers.  After inviting 22 food bloggers from across the country to submit recipes for the next great french fry flavor, Alexia narrowed down submissions to the top four and put the four finalists to a consumer vote.

The flavors were introduced to us at the Foodbuzz Festival back in November.

  • Classic Dill Julienne Fries (created by Angela Williamson of Fab Find Foodie)
  • Thai Spiced Sweet Potato Julienne Fries (created by Marla Meridith of Family Fresh Cooking)
  • Herbes de Provence & Garlic Sweet Potato Julienne Fries (created by Chrystal Baker and Amir Thomas of The Duo Dishes)
  • Bruschetta Waffle Fries (created by Farihah Ali of Spice’s Bites)

Thank you Foodbuzz and Alexia for the free sample!

  1. Ahh, I remember all those fries. Love the fry holders… I think I’ve seen them at restaurants. They definitely make fries seem more sophisticated!

    Sounds yummy!!! I had really yummy sweet potato fries at the Alchemy Market & Cafe in Murphys, California. They were dusted with chipotle and brown sugar and came with a scallion-cilantro aioli, so they would be really easy to recreate with these chipotle fries from Alexia. Drooling just thinking about it…. 🙂

    P.S. Super cute french fry holders!!! That’s exactly how they served them at Alchemy!!! Wow….totally taking me back!!!
