If you like a sweet and spicy flavor profile, you'll get a kick out of Stacy Cox's sweet potatoes, submitted to Taste of Home magazine. The Palestine, Texas cook uses Cajun seasoning and cayenne pepper to season nutrient-rich sweet potatoes.

Yum! These were really good. I loved how the brown sugar offset the spices for a wonderfully tasty dish. Thanks Sharon for such a good and easy side. Made for ZWT9.
