While we were busy moving, I got myself into some trouble with my toddler, Em.
She’s a feisty 2 1/2 year old by now, so I’m talking about some serious business here.
Here’s the deal. We ate at McDonald‘s twice or three times while we were knee-deep in boxes and driving back and forth between our old place and our new house.
It’s not something we usually do at all, yet for some reason my kid now knows McD from about a thousand miles away.
Now I’m the mom who bows her head in shame when her kid cries out “There’s Mac Dooooooonald‘s!” whenever the golden arches are somewhere to be seen.
I mean, honestly kid? Try learning “there’s the organic milk you work your butt off to afford buying for us!”
I’m exaggerating (per the usual), but you get my point.
Anyways, she’s a huge fan of fries and she keeps telling me that we’ll go eat fries now. Only, we’re not, so I promised her we’d make some once we were done with the move.
But then we all got sick for two weeks (yes, it was so much fun) and I didn’t have fries on my mind. At all.
Now if you think Little Miss McD-Lover forgot about her fries, you’re quite the opposite of right.
So once I felt like I could stand for more than five minutes again, I made fries with her. Oh, how I made fries!
Sweet potato fries. Mexican. Avocado. Basically all my favorite things in one recipe.
I cut the sweet potatoes with the super-handy fry cutting disc thing (whatever it’s technically called) that came with my Breville food processor which I ♡ and is available here on Amazon* for a really good price right now!).
Honestly, I thought I would use my food processor all.the.time, but I’ve had it for over two years now and so far I’ve mostly used it to make fries and chips. Which probably tells you way too much about me.
But I digress. If you don’t have this amazing gadget of fry-cutting magic, you should get yourself one. Or you can cut your fries by hand, it’s just a tad more work.
Either way, these are the perfect side dish for your next Mexican fiesta. Which should take place tonight, and also have Avocado, Mango and Black Bean Salsa and Mexican Macaroni Salad, or else you’re totally missing out 😉
Here’s the recipe for mexican sweet potato fries:
