Spicy sweet potatoes are roasted in the oven using spices and olive oil for a healthy treat.  You will be surprised how good these spicy sweet potatoes really are.  I use 3 sweet potatoes in this recipe and I can eat them all in a day.  I keep going back to the kitchen and picking at them and snacking on them all day.  I love sweet potatoes made this way.  This makes a great side dish for just about any meat and especially pork.  This is so easy to make, too.  Be sure to check out our other recipes for sweet potatoes!

3 large sweet potatoes, washed, peeled and chopped in about 1 1/2 inch pieces

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

pinch cayenne (optional)

Wash, peel and chop sweet potatoes.  In a large bowl whisk together the oil, oregano, black pepper, salt, garlic powder and cayenne.  Toss the sweet potatoes in the oil.  Spread sweet potatoes on a sprayed baking sheet and bake in preheated 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes.  I turn them after 20 minutes.  Makes 3 to 4 servings.  Enjoy!

Tip:  Want an easy way to peel and chop sweet potatoes?  Put them in the microwave for about 2 minutes before roasting.  Peel while still hot or warm.
