I’m all about making things easy in life, so I always have some sort of Alexia frozen side hanging out in my freezer (Sweet Potato Fries, Regular Fries, Waffle fries , rolls etc…). When I need a starch to beef up a meal, those guys are my go-to’s!

So, I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret of mine…

Frozen fries or tots can be jazzed up into something spectacular with just a little TLC! I’ve done it before with these guys… and now I’m introducing you to a new variety thanks to the Alexia Sweet Potato Puffs:

First off, can I just say that sweet potato puffs = GENIUS! When I saw these, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them!

Every kid loves a good ol’ fashioned tater tot… THESE my friends are the grown up version! My quick trick is to spray them down with a little non-stick cooking spray and season them with spices. What goes better with sweet potato than a little brown sugar, cumin, and chili powder?! Sweet AND smokey. Then I jazzed up the ketchup with a little spice as well & BAM!

A spectacular little appetizer (or side)! Hello game day treat…
