Baked Sweet Potato With Maple-Jalapeno Sour Cream

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Lucky in Bayview

I clipped this recipe out of a trial magazine I received in the mail one day. The magazine was called Cuisine At Home. I'm not a fan of sweet potato recipes that are super sweet. This is a nice mix of spicy, tangy and a little bit of sweet.

4 and 1/2 stars for me. I was excited to make this because I love sweet potatoes. The maple syrup was a little strong for me; I will reduce it to 1/2 tablespoon. However, hubby brought home pickled jalopenos instead of fresh so maybe you will need 1 tablespoon. Next time I will start out with the half and adjust after this. Made for PAC 2011
