My husband told me he didn't like sweet potatoes so I decided I wanted to find a way to change his mind. He said he didn't like the fact that they were sweet - - so I made them savory and spicy! And guess what - he liked them and even had seconds!! You should give this receipe a try. I plan to make it again!!
