This was a nice way to top sweet potatoes. I only used half the amount of butter in the recipe. I had leftover poblano butter which we used on corn on the cob later in the week, also delicious!

This was really good. Used Best Life fat-free margarine and seeded and roasted my poblano. Excellent on a sweet potato!
