While classic spicy dips pair perfectly with sweet potatoes, you can opt for creamy dips like pesto aioli or sweet dips made from marshmallows. 

These dipping sauces for sweet potato fries are incredibly addictive, so fire up that deep fryer!

1. Cajun Sweet Potato Fries Dipping Sauce 

Nothing pairs better with sweet potato fries than a sauce with a spicy kick!

With plenty of cajun seasoning and a vegan mayonnaise base, this dip will make a full plate of fries disappear.

Be careful – cajun dip isn’t for the faint of heart. It earns a double spice punch not only from the cajun seasoning but also from sriracha sauce. 

If you want those cajun flavors without the 5-alarm fire in your mouth, lower the amount of sriracha or omit it altogether. 

2. Sriracha Dipping Sauce 

It doesn’t get much easier than this Sriacha dipping sauce! It’s super easy and comes together with simple pantry staples. 

The creamy yet tart sour cream (or Greek yogurt) base pairs perfectly with crispy sweet potatoes and earns an extra spice kick from Siracha. 

If you want to keep your dipping sauces healthy, swap out full-fat dairy for something lighter. 

Greek yogurt can replace sour cream (while also amping up the protein) and swap full-fat mayo with lite mayo. 

Who says that dipping sauces can’t also be healthy?

3. Chipotle Lime Dip 

Chipotle spices and lime juice marry together in harmony with tender sweet potatoes. 

It’s smokey, spicy, and earns a bonus citrus pop from a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

This dip is perfect for sweet potatoes because adding fresh lime juice brings out the flavors in the sweet potatoes and spicy chipotle seasoning. 

It’s spicy without being too spicy.

If taco Tuesday needs a new and exciting side dish, these sweet potato fries with a Mexican-inspired dipping sauce give traditional tacos a run for their money. 

4. Toasted Marshmallow Dip 

We all know that the toasted marshmallow on the top of sweet potato casserole is the best part.

So, why not cut to the chase and get to the good stuff without dirtying a casserole dish?

Pair salty sweet potatoes with toasted marshmallows and cream, and you are in sweet and salty heaven. 

The best part about this recipe is that the marshmallow and sweet potatoes roast in the oven together, which makes it super simple to whip up in a snap. 

It’s a great dish to bring to a potluck or holiday party when you want to shake up your sweet potato game. 

Move over, sweet potato casserole!

5. Baconnaise (aka Bacon Mayonnaise)

Bacon infused mayonnaise. Need I say more?

Okay, I will. You’ll make this stunner with egg yolks, Dijon, and rendered bacon fat.

So every bite is meaty and salty.

Add onions and bacon bits, and it’s to die for!

6. Paprika Garlic Aioli 

I have to be honest – you could deep fry a shoe and serve it with aioli, and I’d dig in! 

This dip is sure to be a hit with smoky notes from the smoked paprika and enough minced garlic to keep the vampires at bay. 

A squeeze of fresh lemon juice mildly tames the sharpness of the garlic, and all of the rich flavors from the dip lift off the plate with delicate sweet potato fries. 

While it’s the perfect dipping sauce for sweet potatoes, it’s also an excellent way to jazz up steamed veggies or slather on a cheeseburger. 

7. Spicy Ketchup 

Regular ketchup might work for regular fries, but sweet potato fries deserve something more elevated. 

This spicy ketchup recipe requires a few pantry staples to transform bland ketchup into something more spicy and flavorful. 

The touch of spiciness comes from chili powder, sriracha, and just a dash of hot sauce.

Additional spices like garlic, onion, and paprika add much more flavor than your average ketchup. 

After making this simple recipe, you’ll never look at bottled ketchup the same way. 

8. Pesto Aioli

You don’t always have to pair sweet potato fries with a spicy dip. This pesto aioli is worth checking out for something milder but still delivering massive flavor. 

It infuses a creamy mayonnaise base with a full cup of fresh basil for a punchy herbal kick.

A touch of lemon juice lifts the robust flavors of the basil for a creamy dip that’s hard to resist. 

It’s fragrant, a beautiful green color, and lasts for up to one week when stored in an airtight container in the fridge. 

You’ll likely find more ways to include this yummy dip with more than just fries!

9. Chipotle Aioli 

This recipe will surely be a big hit at dinnertime if you love smoky chipotle season in a creamy aioli sauce. 

It lends just a touch of heat and smokiness without being overpowering.

It works so well with sweet potatoes because the chipotle seasoning heat lifts the sweet potatoes’ natural sweetness. 

This aioli is so versatile it also pairs wonderfully with burgers or on other roasted veggies, not just sweet potatoes. 

10. Sweet Potato Fries Dipping Sauce (Ranch and Sour Cream) 

Everything is better with ranch! However, this isn’t your average ranch sauce. 

It infuses a little extra spicy kick from Cholula (or your favorite hot sauce). It’s creamy with just a spice that makes those sweet potatoes irresistible.

The best part about this recipe is that it is so simple to throw together in a hurry. 

Opt for your favorite ranch dressing, add a little sour cream for thickness, and throw in as much (or as little) hot sauce as you like.
