the inspiration behind these loaded mexican sweet potato fries
The way this recipe came about was that I was thinking about just how perfect of a bite elotes are. The sweetness of the corn is perfectly complemented by the saltiness of the cotija and creaminess of the crema. A little bit of lime and Tajin rounds it out. What other vegetables are starchy and sweet, and could also stand up to these big flavors? Sweet potatoes!
