Chili Roasted Sweet Potatoes

We stumbled upon this recipe sometime when we lived in Tucson. After living there for 3 years and San Diego for 6, we developed a taste for spicier foods. This warming recipe can be made as spicy or not as you prefer, but it’s one of our cold weather favorites.Chili Roasted Sweet Potatoes - Screen shot 2016 06 21 at 9 - Chili Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Chili Roasted Sweet Potatoes

(Makes 4 side-dish servings-I usually double this)

  • 1 1/2 pounds (about 3 medium) sweet potatoes
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 lime sliced for each place

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into 3/4 inch chunks or fries.

Drizzle with oil and mix well again. Arrange chunks in layer on rimmed baking stone or roasting pan  (non-aluminum is healthiest).Chili Roasted Sweet Potatoes - Screen shot 2016 06 21 at 9 - Chili Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Roast on lower rack for about 20 minutes, or until chunks brown on the bottom and feel tender when pierced with a fork. Squeeze the lime juice onto the sweet potatoes. Incredible!

Family Tradition

Over the years that we’ve eaten this dish, our children have had great fun sucking on the lime slices.
