I really enjoyed this, but felt it needed longer in the oven.

These are so simple to make but taste delicious. Very hot, spicy and rich - we found that one per person is definitely enough.

This recipe, as easy as it was to prepare, did not work. The chipotle overpowered the flavor of the sweet potatoes, and yes, it was a bit hot, to be expected. When no one liked them at the pot luck I attended, I brought them home, added brown sugar, pineapple and butter, which blended with the smokey chipotle flavor, turned out fairly well. The olive oil in this recipe added nothing and I think butter made it much more flavorful.
