Black Bean Sweet Potato Burritos

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

2 lbs sweet potatoes                            

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 tsp kosher salt                                

1/2 tsp sweet Hungarian paprika

1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)

1/8 tsp. cayenne or 1/4 tsp. chili powder (optional)

Preheat over to 425 degrees. Cut each potato in half, and then into quarters.  Then, slice into fry shapes, about 1/2 inch wide. Place the sweet potatoes into a large bowl.  Add oil, salt, paprika and cinnamon and stir to coat.  Spread the potatoes out onto the baking sheet in a single layer. Cook for 20 minutes, turn once. Cook 10 minutes more, or until slightly browned.  Serve warm.
