Good cooking method, but the original recipe is not so tasty. Made this to a T the first time and all I tasted was taco seasoning, taking away from the nice, sweet flavor of the sweet potato. So since then, I've tossed the potatoes in a large ziploc bag, drizzled with olive oil (about 1-2 tablespoon), and lightly sprinkle with kosher salt, sometimes with pepper if the kids aren't eating and toss to coat. I bake the first 20 min. on 400, last 15-20 min. on 425. 1 hour is too much and burns them. I've dipped these in ranch sauce (kid's fav), garllic aioli or just eat plain. Good way to get the kids to eat sweet potatoes without frying - full of vitamin A and beta carotene. Also great with steak dinners. 2 stars for original recipe - 5 stars with changes. Tip - put a greased sheet of foil on your cookie sheet - no sticking and no mess.
