Sweet & Spicy Sweet Potato Recipe

Sweet & Spicy

Hi there!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe and let me tell you, I chose a great one to come back in with a bang! đŸ˜‰

I used to HATE sweet potatoes; the taste, the smell, the texture, everything about ’em! Fast forward a few years and now they are one of my favorite carbs. The sweet spuds are cheap, versatile, good for you and easy to cook. 

I especially LOVE crispy sweet potatoes. Don’t come at me with a plate of mushy sweet potato fries or a pile of steamed mash.  The best way to get them crisp is to fry them but I tend to stay away from frying as much as I can; I use coconut oil as a healthier alternative to other heavy oils. 

I invite you to try these sweet and spicy taters and let me know what you think!

  3. 1/2 tsp chili powder

  1. I'm impatient and love the ease of steaming the potatoes in the microwave but feel free to boil or bake them if you prefer.
