I peeled and cut the potatoes into chunks. Tossed with olive oil, then spices. Took a little less baking time. I made this with my friend, who loves spicy food, in mind. Well, turns out he doesn't care that much for sweet potatoes. I, on the other hand, love sweet potatoes, but not so much, the spicy foods. If you like both, I believe this recipe would most likely be a winner.

This is my new standard recipe for sweet potatoes. I have cut these into chunks and into fries instead of leaving them whole. Mostly because I'm impatient to eat them and don't want to wait for the potato left whole.
