Quick and easy way to jazz-up sweet potatoes. Great blend of sweet, salty, spicy, and a flash of heat. Great with pork roast, ribs, ham, or your favorite BBQ.

Sweet spicy and better than I imagined it would taste. I didn't have any chipotle chili powder so I substituted cayenne pepper. Also I used olive oil instead of butter. My husband loved it and said we should always use this recipe for roasted sweet potatoes. My teen son loved it so much he hugged me after dinner! Read More

Way too spicy. We like hot food but I can't help but think that 1 Tbsp of chipotle pepper is a typo. Also I took the hint of another reviewer and cut my potatoes into a french fry shape and they were limp. They never did get crispy. Maybe the key is to leave them in the wedge shape. I have rarely had such a disappointing result from a recipe. Read More

Update: 1 July 2016. These are so good when you cut the potatoes in a spiralizer! Very nice change from the usual sweet potatoes. I served these at our Tex Mex Christmas feast and they were a perfect complimet to fajitas and tacos while maintaining a holiday tradition of sweet potatoes on the table. Thanks for sharing the recipe What's For Dinner Mom! Read More

Made this for recipe group and it is a keeper for sure!!! The description said it all. Sweet salty spicy and a flash of heat. I had to cut down just a tad on the chipotle as I have a heat wimp in the house. Will be making these again soon! Thanks Wfdm! Read More

Holy moly! I could've just eaten these for dinner!! I used to dislike sweet potatoes and ONLY eat them when covered in brown sugar butter & marshmallows. This is my new obsession. I knew they would be great when I swiped a lick of the bowl after I tossed them into the oven.. the seasoning mix alone was yummy. I followed the recipe but used chili powder (no chipotle powder on hand) and I used foil instead of parchment paper (suggestion: spray the foil! I didn't and they stuck a bit!). I forgot to set the times and took them out when they were tender (no clue how long!). they were firm and nicely roasted on the outside and creamy on the inside. They do have a tiny kick of heat but it's balanced by the sweet of the brown sugar and potato. These are fantastic! Read More

The best baked sweet potato fries I have had! Like another reviewer even my husband who isn't keen on s.p. thought they were pretty good. I did decrease salt and pepper a bit but otherwise kept proportions pretty accurate ( used 1/2 recipe for one very large sweet potato). For Epicure users I used 2/3 regular chili powder and 1/3 Epicure chipotle chili powder because it is so potent. Good amount of heat for moderate spice people. Read More

I estimated amounts of each spice as I tested the recipe on a half of a potato for me (single serving) but kept the proportions of the original recipe. Rather than quartering I sliced lengthwise into french fry like sizes. Used olive oil and forgot I had chipotle powder and subbed chili powder - but the combination of sweet salty and spicy was amazing. This goes on my repeat list will definitely impress guests as well.
