- 4 sweet potatoes, washed well and dried
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sweet, hot or smoked paprika (I used the smoked today)
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (depending how hot you want it-use less if you use hot paprika)
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425. Cut sweet potatoes into wedges. Combine oil, paprika, cumin and cayenne then toss with potatoes. Spread single layer on baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, turn them over and bake 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
variations: use another type of potato, add hot sauce to spice mixture (Rachel Ray does this), add a tablespoon or two of maple syrup for some sweetness.
