Southwestern Salty Sweet Potatoes to Cry For!

My friends beg for these everytime I give a party! They are so delicious and satisfying, I just never seem to fix enough no matter how many I make. I wonderful change from white oven fried potatoes which are so high in carbs. THESE ARE VERY LOW CARB. And I dare you to stop at just one serving...I found this recipe in Healthy Cooking but have modified it to my own taste.

Delicious! I roasted them a little longer than 20 mins. and let the edges get a little crispy and caramelized. So good! I'm looking forward to making these again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
