To round out this weeks’ healthier game day snacks, I made these Baked Sweet Potato Skins with Sriracha Lime Aioli. Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet, but dip them into a spicy-citrusy-creamy dip and they take on a whole new flavor. As much as I loved the Eggplant Caponata and Baked Honey Garlic Chicken Wings, these potato skins were my personal favorite.

Baked Sweet Potato Skins with Sriracha Lime Aioli

Start by washing the skins of the sweet potato with a vegetable brush under warm water to remove any excess dirt. Then using a sharp knife, peel away strips of the potato skin with some of the flesh. I used six medium sized potatoes and got twenty four skins. Save the remaining potato flesh for other uses like Mustard & Tarragon Roasted Sweet Potatoes or  Dijon Braised Chicken with Sweet Potatoes.

Add the potato skins to a baking sheet and brush with some extra virgin olive oil; then sprinkle with Kosher or sea salt. Bake in a 450 degree F oven for 20 minutes.

While the potato skins are in the oven, make your Sriracha Lime Aioli dipping sauce. In a mini food processor or blender, combine the Sriracha, or any other hot sauce you prefer, fresh lime juice, mayonnaise and garlic; then pulse until smooth and creamy. This dip makes 1 cup (16 tbsp/1 tbsp per serving) and has 92 calories per serving. I used regular Hellmann’s mayonnaise, but you can use whichever mayo you prefer.
