    I loved this recipe! The tart from the lime with the contrast of the sweet potato, the spicy heat, and the boost from the cilantro made this recipe a keeper in my book! I selected the recipe after seeing justcallmetoni's photo in Fall 08 Pick A Chef an am so glad I did! Thank you for sharing!

    Finishing off my Core week I was looking for a tasty side to pair with a salsa baked chicken. While making this I realized I was a little short on sweet potatoes and supplemented with cubed butternut squash. I love the spicy sweet combination with the tangy hit from the lime. Much gusto. Made for Pick a Chef Fall 2008.

    I was going to post this one myself. This is soooooo good. The sweet with the tart lime works so well. This also makes 4 very generous servings. I am also doing WW core and it is nice to find side dishes the whole family will enjoy.
