  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, cut into fries

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or a blend)

  • 1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained

  3. Spread the fries in a single layer on the baking sheet, making sure they aren't overlapping too much.

  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until crispy, flipping halfway through the cooking time.

  5. Once baked, sprinkle the shredded cheese over the hot fries and return to the oven for a couple of minutes until the cheese melts.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Fries Texture: For crispier fries, make sure to cut them evenly and soak them in cold water for 30 minutes to remove excess starch. Dry thoroughly before baking.

  • Oven Position: Bake the fries on the middle rack to ensure even cooking.

  • Cheese Melting: Use a mix of cheeses for a rich, melty topping.

  • Topping Variations: Feel free to add other toppings like diced tomatoes, green onions, or a drizzle of barbecue sauce.

  • Healthy Options: Substitute sour cream with Greek yogurt for a healthier alternative.

  • Serving Suggestion: Serve with a side of ranch dressing or blue cheese dip for extra flavor.

  • Meal Prep: Prep the sweet potatoes ahead of time and store them in the fridge until you're ready to bake.

  • Leftovers: Reheat any leftovers in the oven or air fryer to maintain crispiness.

Loaded Sweet Potato Fries are not only tasty but also a festive and fun dish that's perfect for sharing. Enjoy creating and devouring this treat!
