Spicy-Sweet-Roasted Sweet Potatoes

We have never been a family to eat many sweet potatoes.
Yes.. I know they are jam-packed with nutrients.
Yes.. I know everyone says they are yummy.
Unless it was Thanksgiving, we just never made them.
So, of course the men-folk in the house swear they hate them.

Until last night!
These Spicy Sweet Potatoes are wonderful!
They are easy to make!
And, even die-hard sweet potato haters will devour them!
Mine sure did.

Dana's Spicy-Sweet
Roasted Sweet Potatoes

  • 3 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 - 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
  1. Peel the sweet potatoes, cut into approx 1 inch cubes. (this will give you approx 6 cups of potato cubes) Place in a large bowl.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and toss to coat evenly.
  3. Pour coated sweet potato cubes onto a greased baking sheet.
  4. Bake, uncovered at 400 degrees F for 40 - 45 min. Stirring every 15 minutes.
  5. Enjoy!

Oh yum yum!! I can't wait to try these! I know that I should eat more sweet potatoes but I only like them with a ton of butter and brown sugar..which kinda defeats the whole healthy aspect of them....these look fantastic...and not overloaded with sugar!
