  1. I cut this down for two people and I really enjoyed the lime-cilantro butter on the sweet potatoes. Such a surprising new taste for sweet potatoes. I'd like to try it on corn too. Made for the Smok'in Chefs and CQ 2017. Thanks for sharing.

  2. 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 recipe#247522 and corn on the cob. Thank you Lavender for sharing.
