A Cajun Dip for Sweet Potato Fries

Creamy mayonnaise and ketchup spiced with Cajun seasoning and a hit of molasses combine to create Cajun Dip for Sweet Potato Fries. 

Cajun Dip with 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.

ingredients need for Cajun Dip include mayonnaise, catsup, and Creole seasoning

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.

Hi- Just found your blog and am lovin' it!!

My favorite condiment for sweet potatoes is a a greek yogurt dip sole by costco. I think it's just called "Jalepenjo Dip". It's super creamy becuse of the greek yogurt with few calories, tons of taste, and the protein we need (we aren't big meat eaters). We put it on everything, burritos, wraps, turkey burgers, ect. Hope you can find it at your costco!

I love sweet potato fries with BBQ sauce! {It's another great mix of sweet and spicy.} Depending upon the particular sauce I'm using, I will sometimes mix a bit of ketchup in as well... but with so many different types of BBQ sauce, there are quite a few flavor combinations to enjoy!
