Thank you Rio Luna Organic Peppers for sponsoring this post!
This one’s for the sports fans. This one is also for the folks like me who can do without the actual sports part of a Game Day watch party but can definitely get down with snack table. Hello, welcome. I’ve partnered with my friends at Rio Luna Organics to bring you these Loaded Tex-Mex Sweet Potato Fries that will make all of your snack dreams come true. Think nachos but with delicious sweet earthy sweet potato fries as the base. The natural sweetness of the potatoes compliments the spicy savory toppings and creaminess of the melted cheese. Game. Set. Match made in heaven.

Layers of Flavor
These homemade baked sweet potato fries are yummy on their own, but become extra amazing and addictively delicious when loaded up with big bold Tex-Mex flavors. We start with classic black beans and corn, then add sharp, sweet red onion and mild, earthy Rio Luna Organic Diced Green Chiles, and generously cover it all in shredded pepper jack cheese. Pop it in the oven until the pepper jack is melted and bubbling and then load on some more flavor: zesty pico de gallo salsa, creamy cooling avocado, bright fresh cilantro and lime, and last but not least Rio Luna Organic Nacho Sliced Jalapeños to bring the heat.
For the Love of Peppers
Rio Luna Organics have been crafting the highest quality organic peppers and chiles that are certified organic, GMO-free, kosher, fat free, low
calorie and cholesterol free. They add flavor to any dish and the new labels feature a special heat index meter so you know how much heat you’re adding. I love that Rio Luna takes care in using sustainable practices like high efficiency lighting, reduced natural gas usage, reduced water usage through drip irrigation, recycling initiatives and optimizing crop rotation. Grab a can of Rio Luna Organics diced green chiles or spicy jalapeño peppers next time your at the grocery store and unlock the power of pepper in your next meal.
