A recipe for tater tots made with sweet potatoes and seasoned with Cajun seasoning, served with a spicy Sriracha dipping sauce.

These are fun! Ever want to make your own homemade Tater Tots?

We’ve used the sweet potato as they are readily available this time of year, and isn’t it fun to do something different with sweet potatoes?

Maybe you can serve these for Thanksgiving this year with a bit of sweetened sauce. You can fry these but they bake up nicely. If you want them to be more crispy, leave them in the oven longer or turn on the broiler.

The longer you leave them in, the crispier they will become.

These are a great side dish.

Let’s talk about how we make them, shall we?

How to Make These Cajun Sweet Potato Tots with Spicy Sriracha Sauce – the Recipe Method

First, preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Bake the sweet potato about 45 minutes, or until it becomes very tender all the way through. Alternatively, you can microwave the potato on your potato setting about 7 minutes.

Allow cool and peel.

Add to a mixing bowl and mash with a spoon. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

Form the mix into tater tot shapes, like mini logs. You can easily roll them into a ball then slightly flatten them on 2 sides to elongate them.

Set onto a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes, flipping half way through, until nicely browned.

Serve with your Sriracha Sauce!

For the Sriracha Sauce, simply add mayo, sriracha, lime juice and vinegar to a mixing bowl and mix well.
Serve!
