Spicy Dipping Sauce with Sriracha for Sweet Potato Fries or Roasted Vegetables found on KalynsKitchen.com

I remember how delighted I was when I discovered Sweet Potato Fries, and the recipe on the blog for Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries has been a favorite of mine for quite a while now. I still love to make sweet potato fries that way, tossed in a mixture of spices, but recently I started to make plain sweet potato fries and put the spiciness in the dipping sauce. Sometimes I’ll even eat this Spicy Dipping Sauce with Sriracha on (gasp) frozen sweet potato fries like the ones in these photos, although there’s no doubt that from-scratch sweet potato fries are better.

Whether you make my Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries or Air Fryer Spicy Sweet Potato Fries, or use frozen ones, this sauce is the perfect dip for sweet potato fries. Fresh lime juice is the secret ingredient that I think makes this over-the-top good! And if you don’t want the carbs from the sweet potatoes fries, enjoy this tasty sauce on roasted veggies for a completely low-carb treat!

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Sweet potato fries with a moderate amount of this Spicy Dipping Sauce with Sriracha would be approved for phase 2 or 3 of the original South Beach Diet, especially if you make your own sweet potato fries and use light sour cream and light mayo. If you eat it with low-carb vegetables, this could be great for other low-carb eating plans, which would prefer full-fat mayo and sour cream.

  1. This was delicious. I find Sirracha a little to much of a dry heat, so I added a teaspoon of honey and increased the Sirracha – I used a shade more than a teaspoon.  But I also increased the mayo and sour cream to make more sauce. I definitely will use this again!

  2. Not sure what you mean by that, but I’m not able to provide nutritional information for the recipes for several reason, including the additional time it takes, the difficulty in doing it accurately, and the sheer number of recipes on my site. If you look after the recipe itself, I give two links (where it says “Nutritional Information”) for suggestions of two ways to get that information. That’s all I can do at this time. Thanks for understanding.

  3. recipe omits HOW MUCH lemon juice

    • So sorry about that. I must have skipped that line when I copied it over to the new recipe format. And I was at a lecture so just saw this. Fixed now. I hope you were able to experiment with adding lime juice and get it to work for you.

  4. I think brussels sprouts is genuis; must try!

  5. I usually just mix light mayo and siracha, but yes, it's awesome with roasted cauliflower or Brussels sprouts as well.

  6. Natasha, glad you like it!

  7. This dip is YUMMY!!! I'm waiting on my sweet potato fries to finish cooking, but w/ this sauce I know they'll be fantastic. Thanks so much!!!

  8. Yummy! Sweet potatoes and Sriracha. How scrumptious! Adding sweet potatoes to my grocery list today. 🙂

  9. I used equal parts sour cream, mayo & yogurt & it turned out nicely. A little too much lime for my taste but still very good!

  10. This looks amazing. I LOVE Sriracha. Never imagined you could use it for fries' dipping sauce though.

  11. Heather, welcome, and fun to hear from someone local.

  12. I've been amassing food blogs in my google reader for 2 years now and I just barely stumbled upon a local blog! So glad to see you out there! And this recipe looks delicious. 🙂

  13. I love, love LOVE sweet potatoes and sweet potato fries. That dipping sauce looks delicious.

    The last time I made SP fries, I tossed them with oilive oil and cajun seasoning. That spicy seasoning contrasted with the sweetness of the fry and the lucious caramelization. It is my new go-to way to make them. Ad Emeril said- It really kicked it up a notch.

    Your dipping sauce does too!

  14. I've been out all day today and have been moderating the comments from my iPhone, but just wanted to say that I LOVE all the suggestions for other ingredients or other uses for the sauce.

    And nice to hear that I'm making a few converts for Sriracha too.

  15. Mmm, if you mix sriracha sauce with lots of other sauces, chances are it will be real tasty!
