      5 stars and more! Wonderful flavor, sweet yet spicy. I'm always looking for something new to make with my Tex-Mex dishes and this will be on my menu in the future. My only regret is I can't afford to buy real maple syrup, had to use my pancake sryup, but it tastes fine. I'm sure Karo would be good, too, I just didn't think about that when I was making it this time. Great recipe, thanks!

      Very spicy, a little to much cayenne & chili powder. I used less butter than the recipe said, and I mixed it myself, no food processor, but the consistency was great!! My husband, who does not like sweet potatoes, loved these, but they were to spicy for anyone other than him and myself.
