There are days when you just need to spice up your life! These homemade Tex-Mex Sweet Potato Fries are full of zest thanks to the ClubHouse ‘tex mex’ one step seasoning mix. Sweet potatoes are of course peanut and milk free! When you find a vegetable that your toddler loves you try and incorporate it into as many meals as possible, am I right?
The Vitamin A, and C powerhouse sweet potato is in high rotation at our house because everyone loves the sweet flavour and the texture is comfortable even for the youngest of palates.
The versatility of making my own spice combinations is what makes creating recipes for the family so fun! Different dishes can easily be modified based on flavour preferences and of course allergies and intolerances. I found this Fajita seasoning recipe from A Dish of Daily Life and it looks absolutely perfect to substitute for the Club House Signature Blends ‘tex mex’ one step seasoning.

Before becoming an allergy aware family, we often frequented bulk food stores for purchasing spices and other kitchen staples. However, due to the cross-contamination potential, we sometimes stick with pre-made seasoning that is guaranteed peanut and milk free. I have called Club House several times to inquiry about different products and this has been declared SosiSafe (it’s also Gluten Free)! I would caution to always check with companies before using their products since they can change their production facilities or ingredients at anytime. Always make sure to read labels, call, or email to get the most up to date information.
Now for the peanut free and milk free Tex Mex Sweet Potato fries recipe!
Easy peasy setup…
4 medium sweet potatoes (yams also work)
2 tablespoons Club House ‘tex mex’ seasoning
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Cut your sweet potatoes into bite size bits, or slice them into fry style pieces. Your cooking time will vary depending on how thick you slice’m.
3. Grease the pan with half of the olive oil. I prefer to use glass baking pans, the edges tend to crisp up more evenly and I like to avoid using products with non-stick applications.
4. Place the sliced sweet potatoes into the pan. Evenly spread the spices on top, coating evenly. Add the rest of the olive oil and give it one more good stir. (The seasoning is good but it’s not fun to get a fry coated with spice).
5. Bake for 20 minutes. Flip the fries. Return to over for another 20 minutes. The fries should be done at this time but as we know all ovens are different so keep watch. If they are crispy on the outside you are good to go.
Serve with your favourite tangy mayonnaise dip. A quick dip I like to make includes mayonnaise, maple syrup, and Cholula hot sauce.
Enjoy your peanut free and milk free Tex Mex Sweet Potato Fries!
