Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries
We love a good, crispy sweet potato fry. Though the oven-baked variety is great, these air fryer fries get even crispier and take way less time! Paired with our favorite 3-ingredient secret sauce, we can't think of a better snack.
Pro Tip: Unfortunately, not all air fryers are created equal. While this recipe has been tested time and time again in our air fryer, you may find different results in your own. If you haven't made sweet potato fries in your air fryer before, it's a good idea to start with less time per side. Start with 5 minutes and work your way up when making these for the first time.
