Jalapeño-Lime Sweet Potato

When you're in the mood for a spicy dish that will provide two side servings, this is the way to go. 
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1/4 C sour cream
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp minced jalapeño pepper
  • 1/2 tsp lime juice
  • 1/8 tsp hot sauce (optional)
  • dash salt
1.  Bake sweet potato (see notes, below)
2.  In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, syrup, pepper, lime juice, hot sauce if desired, and salt.  Cut sweet potato in half; top with sour cream mixture.  

Robyn's notes: just as with white potatoes, there are several ways to bake a sweet potato.  The fastest is the prick it with a fork in several places, and microwave on high for 8-9 minutes, flipping once halfway through.  You can also poke it then wrap in foil and bake at 400°F for 45-50 minutes, or on a grill if you've already got one heated.  The longest way but which has the best result in my opinion is to poke it in several places, wrap in foil, place in a 1 1/2 qt slow cooker, and cook on Low for 4.5 hours.  Use what works best for you.  Watch me demonstrate this recipe on youtube!

*** 3 Stars: Good. At least one of us liked this enough for me to make it again, but not often
