Spicy Sweet Potatoes

A delicious side dish that is spicy and sweet.  Super easy and requires ingredients that you probably already have on hand.  Adapted from a recipe on Pinterest.


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1" cubes
  • 2 -1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2-1/2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Honey

Put sweet potatoes that have been peeled and cubed in a bowl.  
Combine olive oil, brown sugar, chili powder, salt and cayenne pepper with the potatoes and stir well.  Let sit on counter for 10 minutes, stirring after 5 minutes to make sure everything is well coated.

Spray a cookie sheet or line it with non-stick aluminum foil.  Use a cookie sheet that has sides.  Pour the potatoes and coating on the cookie sheet a drizzle with honey.  Bake in a preheated 400° oven for 40-45 minutes or until tender, stirring about every 10 minutes.
