THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! This was awesome!! I was trying to find a really good sweet potato recipe that used the natural sweetness of the potatoes, rather than those overly sugared candied desserts. It was soooo easy to make! A lot less time consuming than regular potato salad, and it has a unique, delectable flavor! I was unsure of the hot sauce at first, but I found it to really compliment the sweet potato.
I didn't have any regular hot sauce on hand, so I used a packet of the hot sauce you get at Taco Bell, and it worked really well.
Also, I don't like raw onion, and it gives me heartburn, so I like frying the onion up with the peppers in a little oil or butter with the salt and pepper. This time I put in half of the packet of hot sauce in as well when I was frying it.
I later added the rest of the packet of hot sauce in when I mixed in the mayo, but I think next time I will just use half a packet, as that was enough, rather than the whole packet.
I also added some celery for an added crunch and flavor as a last minute decision, and it tasted great, but it also tastes wonderful without the celery.
For the mayo, I don't think I used the whole amount called for, I just mixed some in a little at a time, until I got the creaminess and flavor that I wanted.
I will definitely make it again!!! This recipe was a hit!!!! It tasted great alongside our cooked chicken!
