Sassy Taters Notes
My culinary partner in cuisine and I concocted this as an improvement on a recipe we heard about and now we are hooked... A healthy alternative to those candied yams with the marshmallows...Our families eat them a minimum of twice a week. They go with everything. Inexpensive and great for you, vitamin packed, fiber rich, low-glycemic...Power Food with a PUNCH! I take them to all the block parties and they vanish into thin air.
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil, to coat poatoes (don't skimp or the potatoes will stick)
- Mix the following spice mixture for sprinkling:
- 2 Tablespoons chili powder (mild, medium, or hot...you decide)
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
Serves / Yields
Depends on number of potatoes
Wash and cut the raw sweet potatoes into approximately 2 inch cubes. Soak in cold, salty water for about 5-10 minutes to draw some moisture out. Drain and pat off excess moisture.
Toss in Olive Oil to coat. Spread on a large cookie sheet. Sprinkle liberally with spice mixture.
Bake for about 50 minutes at 350-400 degrees, until somewhat crispy. After about 20 minutes toss potatoes with spatula and return to oven. Potatoes will be pretty brown.
