Creamy mayonnaise and ketchup spiced with Cajun seasoning and a hit of molasses combine to create Cajun Dip for Sweet Potato Fries.
We are the “condiment family” according to my daughter-in-law.
In general, we have a favorite condiment for almost everything we eat that doesn’t come with its own sauce.
Up until now, sweet potato fries had us stumped. We tried spicy catsup, ranch dressing, cinnamon-sugar, honey, honey-dijon dressing, etc. In short, we experimented with the obvious and not-so-obvious. Nothing did it for us.
Just when I was about to give up, I found this delicious dip in a magazine. It was the answer to our trivial condiment issue.
If you also eat sweet potato fries, I think you will appreciate this easy Cajun Dip! Cajun seasoning adds a kick. Molasses sweetens the mix. It’s the perfect combination.
