Are you looking for a healthy and delicious side dish? Look no further! This chili lime sweet potato dish is so unique and perfect to add to your meal rotation. Veggies should never be bland, and with this recipe, they are SO fun.
Are chili lime sweet potatoes spicy?
Not at all! These chili lime sweet potatoes are savory with a little bit of a kick, but nothing too intense! The salty spicy chili lime powder mixed in with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes is a perfect balance. This adds a lot of fun and dynamic flavor to the potatoes. If you wanted them to be spicy, you could add in some extra seasoning like paprika or chili powder to give the potatoes that extra kick. But on their own, these potatoes will not be too spicy!
What is the best way to chop sweet potatoes?
The best way to chop the sweet potatoes is to cut them in half and then begin to slice them into smaller pieces. Before chopping these potatoes, I typically peel the skin off with a vegetable peeler before I get ready to chop the sweet potatoes. However, if you like the skin on the sweet potatoes, feel free to leave it on! Making sure that the potato slices are not too thick is important. If you leave the pieces too thick and large then the potatoes might not cook as well throughout. To get the best results, make sure that the potato slices are not too thick.
How do you get the sweet potatoes to get crispy in the oven?
One way to ensure that the sweet potatoes get crispy is to make sure you put plenty of oil on the sweet potatoes. Don’t drench them, but also put a nice and generous amount. Putting enough oil on them will ensure that they get nice and crispy in the oven! Another way to get the potatoes as crispy as possible is to have the oven on 425F. Having the oven be hot enough is essential for crispy potatoes. Low heat will cook them, but not crisp them up! Another helpful hint is to make sure to flip them halfway through cooking. This will ensure that they get evenly crispy on both sides.
Are sweet potatoes good for you?
Yes! Sweet potatoes are full of vitamins that you need in your diet. Sweet potatoes are packed with vitamin A and vitamin C. They also have tons of fiber, so this vegetable is such an important one to add to your diet. Sweet potatoes also have Manganese and vitamin B6. Give this recipe a try to get in all of your good vitamins and nutrients!
How do you know when the sweet potatoes are finished cooking?
It is SO easy to tell when the sweet potatoes are finished cooking. Once the potatoes begin to brown and crispen up, they are finished! If you like them more crispy you can leave them in a little bit longer than that and if you like them a little less crispy, you can remove them once they start to brown. Either way, these chili lime sweet potatoes are so delicious!
What spices should I use to make chili lime sweet potatoes?
The spice blend for these chili lime sweet potatoes is super simple and super delicious! Besides just having your basic kosher salt and pepper, this recipe has one other key seasoning! Tajin is the secret seasoning that turns these potatoes from normal roasted potatoes into chili-lime roasted sweet potatoes. This chili lime seasoning is so delicious and adds so much flavor to the potatoes. An alternative seasoning for the potatoes is the Trader Joe’s Chili Lime seasoning. This seasoning is essentially the same as Tajin and either one will work perfectly in this recipe! Both give that delicious chili and lime flavor that amps up these potatoes.
What goes well with chili lime sweet potatoes?
The fun and delicious sweet potatoes go so well with a variety of meals. One of the recipes that I really enjoy with these chili lime sweet potatoes is my crispy salmon recipe! These are SO delicious together and the spice of the tajin really pairs well with the salmon. These potatoes would also go really well with some roasted chicken or even added to a fun fall salad. The possibilities are endless with these yummy and flavorful sweet potatoes. They are such a great way to add veggies to your meal rotation.
