Latin Style Pink Garlic Sauce with Sweet Potato Fries


Tidbits:

The real “recipe” hear is the sauce. I’m not sure what the official name is, and I’m also not sure if I’m making it the official way, but it’s as close as I can get. This sauce is kind of like the “pink sauce” you get at a lot of Latin restaurants. I’ve always been served fried yuca with it. It’s amazing. Also a note about my sweet potato fries, they are far from perfect, and since I bake them and cut them in big pieces they just don’t come out overly crispy, but like I said, it’s the sauce that I really care about.

Ingredients:

Sweet Potato Fries

3 medium sweet potatoes

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt (or garlic salt)

Latin Style Pink Sauce

2 Tbsp Mayonnaise

1.5 tsp Catsup

2 cloves garlic (minced/pressed)

1/8 tsp garlic salt or garlic powder (if you use powder, add a pinch of salt)

1/8 tsp lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Wash and thoroughly dry the sweet potatoes
  3. Cut them into the size “fries” you want
  4. Put them in a large bowl and toss to coat with olive oil.
  5. Add the salt and toss again
  6. Spread evenly on a large baking pan and bake fore 30-35 minutes, tossing half way through (for a little extra crispiness, broil for just a minute but watch closely)
  7. While the potatoes are baking, mix the ingredients of the sauce in small container and whisk with a fork until thoroughly combined
