Thanks Steve. I too will try them tonight, and if I they are as good as they look, I'd like to share the recipe in our Tribal newspaper. I've been asked to submit a sweet potato recipe that wasn't sickly sweet, or made with orange juice. Though I love a plain, baked sweet potato, I was looking for something new to try. This looks like it will be great. Of course, I will have to alter a few things, you know, to make it my own. But it looks wonderful just as it is, and I will be making your version tonight.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Steal away, Chief. I stole the basic premise of adding lime somewhere along the way. The spice additions are my own, though.

I've often thought that a good addition to this recipe might be something to add a little textural interest, maybe some nuts or seeds of some kind. Might be a nice way to mix it up and call it your own.

Just made your recipe, nicked a small sweet potato to try as is since it's my first orange sweet potato. Recipe tastes great yum! Sweet potatoes are just sweeter and orange in colour but they taste pretty much the same as our yellow or white varieties. Slightly less starchy too.
The ones I found are light orange, not as dark as the pics I've seen on DC, might be a blend.

What's The Difference Between Sweet Potatoes and Yams?
What does your OP refer to? When I think "yams" I think Garnet yams, my favorite.

Hi Greg,
Garnets are actually sweet potatoes, not yams. We don't really see many true yams in the US. Garnets or Jewel (also sweet potatoes) are my favorites, too. Either of those varieties will work fine for this recipe.

When we were eating it the other day I was thinking of a textural addition and one strongly came to mind - BACON!!!

Oooooo.... bacon. Laurie, I would have to agree with that.

Though it might take away a bit from the healthy aspect.

Whisk mentioned Steve's Chili Lime Sweet Potatoes in an earlier post today, so I did a search and found it. I wanted to bring it back up, with Thanksgiving menu ideas coming up and all. Sounds delicious, Steve!

Chili Lime Sweet Potatoes Neither my wife nor I learned to like sweet potatoes until relatively late in life. Growing up, they were always served at family get togethers drowning in marshmallows, brown sugar, and maple syrup - more like a dessert than a side dish. That turned us off of them for years, until I started experimenting with more savory recipes. This is hands down my favorite recipe for sweet potatoes. It's quick and easy and, best of all, there is nothing sweet about it. We have these at least once a month and there's usually a fight over who gets the last serving. [SIZE=4]Chili Lime Sweet Potatoes[/SIZE] Ingredients: [LIST] [*]2 lbs garnet or jewel sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes [*]1/2 red onion, chopped [*]1 tbsp olive oil [*]1/4 tsp salt [*]1/2 tsp chili powder [/LIST] Dressing: [LIST] [*]1 tbsp olive oil [*]1 tbsp lime juice [*]zest from one lime, finely minced [*]1 clove garlic, finely minced [*]1/2 tsp salt [*]1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro [/LIST] Preparation: [LIST=1] [*]Preheat oven to 425°F [*]Toss sweet potatoes, onions, olive oil, salt, and chili powder. Arrange potato mixture in a single layer on a greased baking sheet. Roast for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through. [*]While the potatoes are in the oven, whisk together dressing ingredients. Toss hot potatoes in dressing and serve. [/LIST] 3 stars 1 reviews
