Chipotle Lime Sweet Potatoes

This really simple spice rub livens up sweet potatoes for a great side dish. If you want them saucy, you could cook them a little in a fresh tomato sauce after they come out of the oven.

3 sweet potatoes, cut into even chunks
fresh cilantro, chopped

Spice mix:
1 or 2 chipotle peppers + some adobo sauce
2 limes, zested
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp paprika
1 or 2 tsp brown sugar (trust me)
Salt to taste

Puree the chipotle peppers in a small food processor and add the rest of the spices. Add enough lime juice to form a paste. I think I added both limes worth of juice.

Mix into the sweet potatoes.

Spread into a pan and roast at 425 for about 30-40 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro before serving.
