These air-fried Alexia Sweet Potato Fries require just one ingredient: a bag of frozen Alexia Sweet Potato Fries (any variety). You can choose from their classic Alexia Sweet Potato Fries sweet and savory with Sea Salt (regular or organic), or the Waffle Cut sweet potato fries. I haven’t tried the waffle fries yet, but those are next on my list!

You will also need a little avocado oil cooking spray. If you don’t have avocado, you can use olive oil spray. The spray is the best option because you only need a little oil to prevent sticking.

Next, empty the bag of frozen Alexia Sweet Potato Fries into a single layer in your air fryer basket. Do not thaw, make sure they are still frozen.

Avoid overcrowding,  as this can prevent even cooking. If your fries don’t fit in a single layer, cook them in batches. Cook half of the bag at a time if necessary.
