Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the sweet potato wedges with olive oil, ensuring each wedge is evenly coated.
In a separate small bowl, mix together the chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, ground cumin, salt, and black pepper.
Sprinkle the spice mixture over the sweet potato wedges and toss them well to ensure even seasoning.
Arrange the seasoned sweet potato wedges in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
Roast the wedges in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until they are tender on the inside and crispy on the outside, flipping them once halfway through the cooking time for even browning.
Once done, remove the sweet potato wedges from the oven and transfer them to a serving dish.
Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro or parsley before serving.
