Simple Recipe Sunday Series

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Today's recipe? 
The Best Sweet Potatoes You Will Ever Eat!

I am completely obsessed with sweet potatoes. . .

If you remember from last week's recipe, I don't really use measurements, and this week is no different.

1 Large Organic Sweet Potato 
[or as many as you want!]
Olive Oil
Chili Powder
Ground Cinnamon

[Serves 1-2]

-Preheat oven to 380°
-Wash, peel & cube the sweet potato.
-Place in large bowl, drizzle with enough olive oil to cover all sides of the sweet potato cubes.
-Add a dash of pepper and a few shakes of salt [really, it's to your preference].
-Add a few shakes of chili powder, not too much.
-Coat in a cinnamon [so that every side of each cube is covered].

[For a more spicier effect/less cinnamon, switch the amounts of cinnamon and chili pepper being used with one another and add hot pepper flakes, just as good!]

-Mix together so that the cubes are equally covered.
-Place a sheet of tin foil down on a baking sheet 
[for easy clean up purposes]
-Transfer sweet potatoes from bowl to pan.
-Pop in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until you can easily stick a fork in them.

Ta-da! Simple as that. . .

Buon Appetito!



[P.S. I make an amazing sweet potato dish for Thanksgiving every year, and it's similar to this but not as simple. . . It includes lots of butter, maple syrup, nutmeg, and roasted pecans. . . to-die-for!]
