Chipotle Sweet Potatoes

I haven’t been updating much lately, have I? No, I haven’t. And I’m not making any promises to do it a lot, but here’s a couple posts for now. =)

I tried (and adjusted!) a recipe for Chipotle Sweet Potatoes today. They were good and a little different…the chipotle peppers added a new and spicy twist!

Chipotle Sweet Potatoes

Chipotle Sweet Potatoes

3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1/2″ cubes

White wine vinegar

Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste

2 T. honey

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup oil

1-2 T. fresh cilantro, minced

2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced

Additional salt and pepper

Place sweet potatoes in a large greased pan (9×13 or larger). Drizzle with white wine vinegar and sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic to your tastes. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until tender, stirring once. Meanwhile, combine honey, apple cider vinegar, oil, cilantro, and chipotle peppers in a small bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle over roasted sweet potatoes. Yield: 8 sevings

Note: These are pretty spicy. One chipotle pepper might be enough. You can probably find canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce with other canned peppers/chilies at the grocery store.

Here’s the original recipe! Enjoy!
