When it comes to snacking, sweet potato fries have a special place in my heart (and stomach!). Crispy, sweet, and oh-so-delicious, they make for the perfect munchies at any time of day or night.
These are my favorite dipping sauces for sweet potato fries that aren't the usual ketchup or mayo. But what’s a fry without its dipping sauce?
I’m talking about Baba Ganoush, Hibachi Ginger, Harissa Yogurt, and other saucy-mazing dips that might sound super fancy but actually require only simple ingredients!

🍟 Best Dipping Sauce for Sweet Potato Fries, French Fries & More
Unlock a world of flavor with sweet potato fry dipping sauces. These delectable accompaniments turn ordinary fries into extraordinary culinary adventures. Whether you crave a classic pairing or want to explore unique, mouthwatering options, this list will introduce you to a symphony of taste that'll elevate your snacking experience.
1. Smoky Eggplant Dip (Baba Ganoush without Grill)
Let's kick things off with a delicious Mediterranean favorite: Eggplant Dip or Baba Ganoush! I like serving Eggplant Dip alongside Naan and Paska bread, but whenever I’m in the mood for sweet potato fries, you can bet I’ll whip up this dip too.
The crispy, sweet exterior of the fries just contrasts beautifully with the silky smoothness of the Baba Ganoush, and I love it!
If you don't have a grill, don't worry— as long as you have an oven, following this recipe is going to be SO easy.
2. Knorr Spinach Dip
Not gonna lie, I’ve been using Knorr vegetable mix as a secret ingredient to elevate many of my dishes...for years.
It's technically a soup mix, but it's actually so versatile. You can even use it to create a lot of yummy dipping sauces.
In fact, right on the back of its little yellow packet, you'll discover a recipe that's a fantastic match for sweet potato fries: Spinach Dip!
3. Chipped Dip Recipe
Everyone needs a delicious chip dip recipe in their repertoire. It’s a timeless classic that everyone just loves and is absolutely perfect for virtually any occasion—whether you're hosting a casual game night, a classy soirée, or simply indulging in some self-care snacking on a cozy evening in.
4. Easy to Make Garlic Aioli
This dairy-free sauce is a champ! From enhancing the crispness of fresh vegetables and fried foods to lending its luxurious touch to soups and sandwiches, aioli is a superstar that can spice up any meal.
5. Maple Mustard Dipping Sauce
Dap, dip, slather, or smear it, Maple Mustard Dip won’t disappoint. It has a delightful combo of sweet and tangy flavors that will tantalize your taste buds and have your guests raving about your cooking prowess.
For an added zing, don't hesitate to mix in some hot sauce with your local honey!
6. Dijon Mustard
Dijon mustard has a well-balanced flavor profile that tastes really REALLY awesome with potato fries—a mixture of spiciness, acidity, and a hint of sweetness from the white wine and wine vinegar.
Plus, this dip “clings” well to the fries so every bite is totally bursting with flavor.
7. Keto Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce
If you find Dijon mustard a bit too sharp and tangy for your taste, try mixing in some honey. The sweetness of honey mellows out the Dijon's acidity, creating a well-rounded (and more enjoyable) flavor!
8. Hibachi Ginger Sauce
Whenever I make Hibachi Ginger Sauce at home, I find myself dipping pretty much everything in it. It’s THAT good.
This dipping sauce is known for its gingery taste, with hints of soy sauce, garlic, and sometimes a touch of sweetness from sugar or mirin (a sweet rice wine).
If you ever find yourself in Japan, you're likely to come across it in a classic steakhouse.
9. Easy Blue Cheese Dip
This easy homemade blue cheese dip is so much better than anything you can buy at the store.
10. Utah Fry Sauce
If you're from Utah, chances are you know Utah Fry Sauce and have already tried it before. You might have even mixed up your own batch at home without realizing it.
Utah Fry Sauce is basically just a blend of ketchup and mayo, spiced up with some Worcestershire sauce and red wine vinegar to give it that extra boost of flavor.
11. French Onion Dip with Greek Yogurt
This quick and easy Onion Dip recipe is perfect for game days, summer cookouts, movie nights, potluck dinners, or those late-night munchies.
It's made with yogurt instead of the usual sour cream or mayo, so it's got more protein and fewer calories!
12. Basil Mayonnaise
Basil Mayo is like a simple kitchen hack that takes your regular mayo and transforms any dish it teams up with into something extra tasty.
I even like to call it "cheater basil aioli" because it's got all that aioli pizzazz without the fuss.
13. Buttermilk Ranch Dressing
Creamy, full of flavor Buttermilk Ranch Dressing? Count me in!
This dip is my all-time favorite for salads, and it pairs like a dream with ingredients like crisp lettuce, juicy tomatoes, crunchy cucumbers, and sweet carrots.
But believe me, it’s even better with sweet potato fries! Give it a try.
🔥 Sweet Potato Fries Dipping Sauces with an Extra Spicy Kick
14. Velveeta Cheese Dip with Sausage
Is it even a party without some kind of cheese dip on the table? Velveeta Cheese Dip with Sausage is as simple as it gets and always satisfies those snack cravings.
If you need a no-fail dip for a big game, Super Bowl party, or just a chill get-together with friends, this one's a winner. It's simple, quick to make, and a crowd-pleaser for sure!
15. Mexican Corn Dip
Got a can of Mexi-corn? Try Mexican Corn Dip!
Combine the corn with cream cheese, jalapenos, roasted green chilies, corn, and sour cream for a sizzling dip that's sure to kick off the party in style.
16. Tangy Chipotle Lime Sour Cream
Another Mexican Dip, Tangy Chipotle Lime Sour Cream combines fresh lime juice with sour cream to create a zesty sauce that goes SO well with fried foods.
17. Artichoke Spinach Dip
You can never go wrong with a healthy dip like this one!
Back in the day, whenever I'd dine out and spot spinach artichoke dip on the menu, I almost always ordered it.
But now that I've become a pro at making it at home, I honestly think that...my version is better!
18. Creamy Horseradish Sauce
However, a word of caution: go easy on the horseradish sauce at first as it can easily overwhelm the naturally sweet and mellow taste of the fries.
Start with a small amount and gradually increase it to suit your desired level of spiciness.
19. Harissa Yogurt Dipping Sauce Recipe
New to Harissa? You're in for a treat! This spicy Tunisian condiment has an awesome mix of flavors from aromatic ingredients (garlic, coriander, and caraway), giving it a character that's a bit like Sriracha but with its own special flair.
20. Cheesy Roasted Cauliflower Dip
You can prepare this ultra cheesy and smoky roasted Cauliflower Dip up to a day in advance and pop it in the oven right as your guests arrive. Pair it with your newly baked sweet fries for an appetizer like no other!
21. Thai Peanut Sauce Recipe
Get a taste of Asia with this creamy and nutty Thai Peanut Sauce!
Fun fact: Americans commonly associate peanut sauce with Thai cuisine, but it actually originated in Indonesia. Indonesians usually call it satay sauce (or bumbu kacang) and is commonly served with the popular dish, satay (skewered, grilled meats).
22. Sriracha Dipping Sauce
Like many homemade sauces, this honey sriracha sauce can transform any dish from "just okay" to "oh my goodness, gourmet!"
And it should probably come with a warning label: Sriracha Dipping Sauce is highly addictive when drizzled on your food!
23. Boom Boom Sauce
Boom Boom Sauce tastes as awesome as it sounds. It’s a spicy, garlicky, tomato-ey sauce with a mayonnaise base—perfect for crispy chicken tenderloin, deep fried dill pickles, and and just about any fried food you can think of!
24. Bang Bang Sauce
Boom Boom and Bang Bang Sauce both have cool names, but they're not exactly the same. The main difference? Bang Bang Sauce is tangier because of the rice vinegar and plain Greek yogurt.
If you're planning your next BBQ party, be sure to include this sauce to kick things off with a bang!
25. Southern Comeback Hot Sauce
If you have Southern roots or just love that Southern flair, knowing how to whip up a batch of classic Southern Comeback Sauce is a skill worth having.
It’s super creamy, perky, and perfect for dunking—an awesome compliment to just about any Southern dish.
26. Texas Roadhouse Cajun Horseradish Sauce
Another Southern dip, Texas Roadhouse Cajun Horseradish Sauce is quite similar to Creamy Horseradish Sauce from earlier, but without the Dijon mustard and maple syrup. Instead, the recipes includes chili sauce, so it's sweeter, less tangy, and much spicier.
27. Sweet and Spicy Chili Cheese Dip
Whipping up a Sweet and Spicy Chili Cheese Dip is so easy; all it takes is 3 simple ingredients and just 15 minutes of your time!
For this recipe, I'm going with Hormel chili, cheddar cheese, and Philadelphia cream cheese, but you're totally free to switch things up with your preferred cheese or chili and cream cheese brand. Get creative and make it your own!

28. Viral TikTok Boat Dip
If you're a frequent TikTok user, you've likely come across that viral boat dip recipe that made waves a few years ago.

When I'm looking for a surefire crowd-pleasing appetizer, this Pizza Dip Recipe is what I turn to. It's a breeze to prepare, and once it's out of the oven, it vanishes in no time—like magic!
30. Watermelon Ketchup
Watermelon Ketchup not only helps you put those surplus melons to good use, but also strikes a perfect balance of heat and sweetness to complement sweet potato fries.
It doesn't stop at fried foods either; it works wonders on ribs and chops too. It's a versatile flavor enhancer for all your fried and grilled favorites!
31. Mango Coconut Sauce
Dip your fries into this luscious sauce, and you'll experience a delightful blend of tropical sweetness and creamy richness.
And it's not just for potato fries either; it also shines as a dip for spring rolls, grilled shrimp, chicken tenders, and more!
32. Maple Bacon Mayo Dipping Sauce
Bacon is like the secret weapon that can jazz up almost any savory recipe, and trust me, when you toss some bacon into your dips, your kids won't be able to resist them!
What's even better, this dip swaps out the regular bacon fat with olive oil (the good, unsaturated kind). So not only does it taste amazing, but it's also much healthier.
33. Whipped Feta Dip
Whipped Feta Dip is almost too pretty to dip into. But let me tell you, the taste is every bit as amazing as its looks, so don't hold back!
The creamy, tangy, and herb-infused flavors is simply irresistible, your taste buds will do a happy dance.
