Cajun Sweet Potato Fries with Yogurt Dipping Sauce

Have you tried the sweet potato fries at restaurants lately? They are super yummy and I feel like they are much healthier for you then regular french fries... I wanted to try these out at home and here is the first recipe that I found. Not my favorite, but they got eaten! :) They were a little spicy for the kids, so Josh and I got most of them. The sauce had too much of a yogurty taste to it when I first mixed it up, but then I popped it into the fridge while the fries were baking and it went beautifully with the fries...

Cajun Sweet Potato Fries with Yogurt Dipping Sauce
(recipe found at www.bettycrocker.com)

3 large dark orange sweet potatoes (3 pounds), peeled
2 teaspoons cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon ground cumin

2/3 cup fat free plain yogurt
1/4 cup chili sauce
1 teaspoon soy sauce

Heat oven to 425. Cut each potato crosswise into about 4" chunks, then cut lengthwise into 1/2x1/2" strips. In large resealable plastic bag, mix cajun seasoning and cumin. Add potatoes; toss until evenly coated. In ungreased 10x15 pan, arrange in single layer.

Bake 35-40 minutes, turning once, until potatoes are lightly browned and tender. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix all sauce ingredients. Serve sauce with fries.
