Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

Cold weather food needed! I think these would be a great accompaniment to a bowl of soup. Anyone have a soup suggestion?

1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
2 large sweet potatoes (about 1-1/4 lb.)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon brown sugar

Brush an aluminum foil-lined pan with 2 tsp. olive oil. Heat pan in a 425° oven 5 minutes.

Peel sweet potatoes, and cut into 3- x 1/2-inch strips. Combine strips, salt, chili powder, brown sugar, and remaining 1 tsp. oil in a large zip-top plastic freezer bag, tossing to coat.

Place strips in a single layer in prepared pan.

Bake at 425° for 30 minutes or until crisp, stirring every 10 minutes.

I made your Tortilla Soup this weekend and added some corn to it. It's very good. Haven't made these fries yet but they sound so good.
