The Big Game is right around the corner, and you know that here in the Artsy Family we are huge football fans! Even though our team didn’t go all the way this year, we’re still excited to watch the game {and the commercials!} and to enjoy some good food and fun time together. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been sharing some tasty Game Day recipes with you for snack mix, cupcakes, and more, but it’s time we talk about my favorite football-watching treat: Sweet Potato Fries with Chipotle Aioli. Mmm. My mouth is watering already.

But before I share the recipe, I have to tell you a quick story. Last April, as many of you may remember, Lucky magazine and P&G Beauty sent me to Los Angeles for the Lucky FABB conference. After it was over, I met up with one of my favorite blog buddies, Tori from Lil’ Mrs. Tori, who happened to live in the area at the time and took me to a delicious café for lunch. She insisted that we order the Sweet Potato Fries appetizer, which came with Chipotle Aioli. I had no idea what that was, and I’d never had sweet potato fries before either, but I was game for anything tasty. All it took was one bite, and I was hooked! If you can love a french fry, I loved those, especially in that dipping sauce! I ate so many I barely had room for my actual meal…which was fine by me since they were so delicious.


I flew back to Maryland and couldn’t wait to share this tasty new discovery with my family…only to discover that you can’t buy aioli here. Apparently, it’s a West Coast thing. I could, however, buy sweet potato fries!


I found All-Natural Alexia Sweet Potato Fries with Sea Salt, as well as Spicy Sweet Potato Fries with Chipotle Seasoning at my local Walmart. {I also found some tasty looking Crispy Onion Rings too!}


They’re really easy to prepare, and not greasy at all. We enjoyed them a lot plain or with ketchup, and I actually prefer them to “regular” fries. But I still wanted my family to experience the deliciousness I did in California, so I decided to make my own Chipotle Aioli dipping sauce. It requires basically no culinary skills at all {yay!} and is quick and simple to do…just my style.


Chipotle Aioli

2/3 cup mayonnaise
1-2 tbls. chopped chipotles in adobo sauce
3 tbls. fresh lime juice
1 large clove of garlic, minced
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
chopped fresh cilantro, to taste

Mix all ingredients together thoroughly in a large bowl.

Like many recipes, this can certainly be tweaked to your own taste preferences. If you like things spicy, add more chipotles! If you love cilantro, add more…hate it, leave it out. If you prefer things well blended, use a food processor or blender rather than just mixing these ingredients by hand. The best way to get it just right is to taste it and tweak it to your own liking. This recipe is nice and easy; you know if I can make it, you can too!

Once you’re happy with the blend, all that’s left to do is turn on the big game, get yourself a plate, and enjoy it with Alexia Sweet Potato Fries and/or Crispy Onion Rings! Now that I’ve told you my favorite game day snack, what’s yours?
