If you’re anything like us, you can’t get enough of those crispy, boing-y, spicy curly fries served in most diners. Guess what? You can replicate the supremely satisfying strings with a spiralizer! Now when we’re craving a fix, we give those massive potatoes in our kitchen a quick spin, toss them in tons of spices, and bake until crispy. While this works great with regular potatoes, we used sweet potatoes in this recipe for an extra boost of flavor.
