We are sweet potatoe connoisseurs and found this mighty good. I reduced to one serving for hubby and I . Made the dip part with cilantro. The dip makes plenty so also smeared a bit on our corn and still had leftover dip. Served with Beer-Can Chicken and corn on the cob. Thank you Lavender for sharing.

These were really good. I loved the flavor of the cumin and lime juice together in the butter. Very simple to make and delicious. Thanks Lynn for a nice treat. Made for ZWT7 by an Emerald City Shaker.
