Ingredients

Spice Mix:

  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground cayenne red pepper
  • 1/4  teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4  teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4  teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon Sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Sweet Potato Bites:

  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes cut into 1/4” slices
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • Toppings:
  • Franks Hot sauce
  • Monterrey Jack and cheddar shredded cheese Mexican blend
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced
  • jalapeno pepper thinly sliced
  • Sour cream

Instructions

Spice Mix:

  1. Add all ingredients in a large bowl.

Sweet Potato Bites:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°
  2. Add olive oil, and sweet potato slices to spice mix and stir till slices are coated.
  3. Place sweet potato slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, taking care that the rounds do not overlap (if possible).
  4. Bake 8 minutes on one side, then remove from the oven, flip all rounds, and bake another 8 minutes until soft.
  5. When the potatoes are done, remove them from oven and add a dot of hot sauce on each round (or more if desired). Top each round with shredded cheese and wait a few minutes for the cheese to melt (the potatoes will be hot enough at this point to melt the cheese).
  6. To serve, place the rounds on a platter. Add a dollop of sour cream on each round, and garnish with sliced green onions and jalapeño pepper. (Tip: To make the sour cream easier to dollop, mix it in a bowl with a few drops of water to loosen it).
