Smoky Bacon and Chipotle Sweet Potatoes

Total Time

Sweet potatoes are delicious as a savory side. I like them much better this way than with loads of sugar. I've made sweet potatoes semi-"twice baked" before and with furthering tweaking came up with this. Hope you enjoy!

This is a wonderful sweet potato recipe. I really enjoyed the smoky chipotle pepper taste with the crunch of the bacon and pecans. Next time I make this dish, I will add two or maybe three chipotle chilies to really kick it up another notch. Thanks for posting this recipe. Adopted for PAC April 2008.
