Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potatoes

This was another winner.  I had no idea it would be as good as it turned out to be.  I could not make it as spicy as I would like because we are having some young children and it would not be to their taste.

If you choose to make it, spice it up as much as you like.

Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potatoes  (adapted from allrecipes.com)


2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 pinch cayenne pepper


Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F.

Place the sweet potato chunks into a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil, then sprinkle the brown sugar, paprika, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, poultry seasoning, chili powder, and cayenne pepper on top. Toss until the potatoes are evenly coated with the seasoning. 

Spread onto a baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, then turn the potatoes over with a spatula, and continue baking until the sweet potatoes are golden and tender, 10 to 15 minutes more.

These turn out to be little bites of flavor.

Eat and enjoy.

I forgot to take a photo.  This is from Allrecipes.com. It gives you an idea what the final results should look like.

  1. I adore sweet potatoes, Chaya, and especially when they are spiced up. A nice spinach salad on the side and I could make a whole meal of this.

  2. This looks so good, Chaya. I love sweet potatoes!
    Thank you for sharing.
