Tip: Ketchup often has high-fructose corn syrup as a top ingredient. Look for something healthier, like Heinz Simple. It still tastes great without the added sugar! If you like spicy, mix ketchup with a little sriracha for dipping!

This is a go-to side dish in our house because of how simple and cheap it is to make. Consider that a 5-pound bag of potatoes will cost you less than $4, and you can estimate that the ingredients for this spicy potato sticks appetizer or side only cost about $1 or so.

Tip: This is a great recipe to try in an air fryer! Also, consider dipping in Ranch dressing, but it will cost you 1 extra SmartPoint

That’s cheaper than an unhealthy order of small fries from Mcdonald’s! Please share this recipe on your blog, Pinterest, or social media!
