Recipe by What's for dinner, mom?
"Quick and easy way to jazz-up sweet potatoes. Great blend of sweet, salty, spicy, and a flash of heat. Great with pork roast, ribs, ham, or your favorite BBQ."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered
brown sugar, or more to taste
chipotle chile powder, or more to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons
ground black pepper
I used olive oil (1 TBSP) instead if butter. Wanting to cut some if the fat from the recipe. Overall, the fam loved it !
Made this for recipe group and it is a keeper for sure!!! The description said it all. Sweet, salty, spicy, and a flash of heat. I had to cut down just a tad on the chipotle as I have a heat wimp in the house. Will be making these again soon! Thanks Wfdm!
Very nice change from the usual sweet potatoes. I served these at our Tex Mex Christmas feast and they were a perfect complimet to fajitas and tacos while maintaining a holiday tradition of sweet potatoes on the table. Thanks for sharing the recipe What's For Dinner Mom!
I estimated amounts of each spice,as I tested the recipe on a half of a potato for me (single serving), but kept the proportions of the original recipe. Rather than quartering, I sliced lengthwise into french fry like sizes. Used olive oil, and forgot I had chipotle powder and subbed chili powder - but the combination of sweet, salty and spicy was amazing. This goes on my repeat list, will definitely impress guests as well.
Loved this recipe....the sweet and spice went together nicely! Will definitely make this again, and soon! Thanks, Jan!
Recipe group weekly selection. We loved them! My son really loved them! Said I didn't make enough, I did half the recipe, next time I'll make more.
Recipe Group Selection: 04, January 2014 ~ Super yummy and delicious with a touch of heat! Exactly the way I like baked sweet potatoes. I made it as written only cutting back for 1 large sweet potato. My taste buds loved the mixture of the sweet-heat as this potato was going down. Even my sweet potato disliking hubby tried it as I was raving with each bite. Guess what? He liked the skinny pieces. Said "there is too much sweet potato in the thicker pieces". Maybe I will be able to convert him yet, if I cut the pieces thin! Thanks, Jan for sharing your recipe. I have one more sweet potato to make this again, next week. Guess I might have to share!
I made these for recipe group and we really enjoyed them. It's a nice flavor blend and I wouldn't want to change the ratio other than maybe a little less sugar. I only used 1/4 of the seasoning and it could take more so I'll try 1/2 the next time. We don't like to hide the natural sweet potato flavor too much so I was being conservative, just knowing our preference. I also think the full amount would not work for us because it would be too hot for me.
