Crispy, smoky, spicy Sweet Potato Wedges!!!  You really can’t go wrong serving these with any meal!  Did I mention quick and easy?!



  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (or any variety of potato you prefer)
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 1.5 TBSP chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper


Pre-heat oven to 400 F

Cut potatoes into wedges.  Start by cutting potato in half, then make 3 wedges out of each half.

Pre-mix all this spices + cornstarch in a small bowl.

In a large bow, mix potatoes, olive oil and the spices.  You can use a rubber spatula or get in there and get your hands dirty!

Place on cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper, foil or baking rack.

Bake for 25 minutes and check to see if they are done.  I take the largest piece and pierce it with a fork to check if they are done.

Serve immediately, enjoy!


These potato wedges are great as leftovers, you can heat them back in the oven on broil setting for maximum crispiness! 

You can omit the cayenne pepper if you want less heat.

If you have my Homemade Mexican Spice Blend on hand, you can just use 2 TBPS of this plus 1/4 tsp cornstarch.  Recipe found here:  Homemade Mexican Spice Blend
