  • Cook the frozen sweet potato fries in a single layer to allow for even cooking
  • Preheat your air fryer to get perfectly crispy fries

  • Use Ore-Ida or Alexia sweet potato fries in the air fryer for the best crispy results
  • Shoestring fries will take less time to cook since they’re thinner
  • Pair the air fried fries with your favorite dipping sauces for maximum flavor
