Units Scale

For Sweet Potato Wedges:

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes (about 1-1/2 pounds) scrubbed and cut into 6-8 wedges
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt (see note)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Avocado oil spray (or similar air fryer-safe oil for coating the basket)

For Avocado Mayo Dip:

  • 1 large ripe avocado, halved, pitted, and flesh scooped out
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, more as needed
  • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt, more as needed


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 425ºF.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the sweet potatoes, oil, salt, chili powder, paprika, and cinnamon until evenly coated.
  3. Lightly coat the air fryer basket with oil (I use a non-aerosol avocado oil spray), then place the potato wedges in it, spaced evenly apart.
  4. Place the basket in the air fryer and cook the potatoes for about 18 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the sweet potatoes are tender and lightly browned.
  5. While the potatoes are cooking, process the avocado, mayo, lime juice, and salt in a mini food chopper (or by hand) until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding more salt or lime juice as needed.
  6. Serve the sweet potato wedges immediately with the avocado mayo for dipping.


Peeling the sweet potatoes is based on personal preference.

This recipe was tested using Diamond Crystal coarse kosher salt. If you use Morton's kosher salt or fine salt, decrease the volume by half.

Air fryers vary widely in terms of capabilities, capacities, and basket styles. It's important to acknowledge this variation when it comes to any recipe for the air fryer. You might need to adjust the cooking times based on your air fryer. Additionally, if you have a smaller air fryer, you might need to cook in batches. Remember to avoid overcrowding the basket, allowing ample space between the sweet potatoes to promote proper air circulation and achieve crispy perfection.

Sweet potato wedges are best served immediately; while they won't retain their crispness upon storage, they're still delicious and reheated within 2-3 days in an oven or toaster oven.
