Our family loves sweet potato fries so we usually keep a few bags of Alexia sweet potato fries in the freezer for something fast to make during the week. We like the Alexia brand because there are no artificial ingredients, GMO’s and they are cut thinner so they get nice and crispy.

For a little added flavor we like serving ours with dipping sauces like Boom Boom sauce, Chick-Fil-A sauce, Wingstop ranch, tartar sauce or ketchup. We also like using them as a base for nachos instead of chips, yum!

Why This Cooking Method Works

Fast: Alexia sweet potato fries typically take 15-25 minutes to cook in the oven. Cooking them in the air fryer only takes 8 minutes.

No added oil: No need to add any extra oil to get these fries crispy. The hot air circulating around the fries helps them achieve that delicious crispiness like you would get when frying them.

Ingredients Needed

Alexia sweet potato fries – These can be found in the freezer section in most grocery stores. The sweetness of the potato paired with a little salty seasoning makes this a tasty dish.

Feel free to use a different brand. Just know that each brand is cut a little different so the thickness of the fry may vary. If you have thicker cut fries you will want to add a few additional minutes of cook time.

Are sweet potato fries healthy?

Sweet potatoes contain lots of nutrients like fiber, vitamin A and E, however can be higher in carbohydrates and calories than regular French fries. Cooking them in the air fryer does help cut back on excess oil but like with most foods, eating them in moderation is the key.

Recipe tips

  • These fries cook straight from frozen. Don’t thaw before cooking.
  • Each air fryer model cooks a little differently. These should cook up in 8-10 minutes. Check them halfway through when shaking the basket and then add the additional time as needed.
  • Don’t cook too many fries at once. You want the hot air to be able to circulate around the fries so they cook evenly.
  • Do I have to preheat? You don’t have to preheat but I find preheating helps to get these fries nice and crispy.
  • Don’t use aerosol cooking spray. The spray could ruin the air fryer basket.
