(Sweet) Patatas Bravas

If you've been to Spain (or even just a legit Spanish restaurant), you've probably had Patatas Bravas, that delightful dish of fried potatoes doused in a smoky, creamy, slightly tangy sauce. This recipe hits all those notes but lightens things up a bit by using sweet potatoes (which are chock full of amazing nutrients), roasts instead of fries the potatoes, and swaps nonfat Greek yogurt in the sauce for the usual mayonnaise. Don't worry, though. You'll still want to bathe in the sauce just like before, I swear.
