I remember how delighted I was when I discovered Sweet Potato Fries, and the recipes for Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries and Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries both are favorites of mine. And even though the sweet potato fries are tossed in a mixture of spices, I absolutely love this Sriracha Dipping Sauce to go with my sweet potato fries. I’ll sometimes even eat this sauce 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.
This sauce is the perfect dip for sweet potato fries, and in my niece Kara’s family her teenagers make this over and over, even when she isn’t home. 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, keep reading for ways to enjoy this sauce for a low-carb treat!

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!
Glad you enjoyed it! I like the way you made it work for your preferences.
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.
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.
I think brussels sprouts is genuis; must try!
I usually just mix light mayo and siracha, but yes, it's awesome with roasted cauliflower or Brussels sprouts as well.
Natasha, glad you like it!
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!!!
Yummy! Sweet potatoes and Sriracha. How scrumptious! Adding sweet potatoes to my grocery list today. 🙂
I used equal parts sour cream, mayo & yogurt & it turned out nicely. A little too much lime for my taste but still very good!
This looks amazing. I LOVE Sriracha. Never imagined you could use it for fries' dipping sauce though.
Heather, welcome, and fun to hear from someone local.
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. 🙂
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!
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.
Mmm, if you mix sriracha sauce with lots of other sauces, chances are it will be real tasty!
