Baked Sweet Potato Deluxe Recipe

"I downsized the original recipe for this spicy side dish and adjusted it a bit for my husband and me," writes Sarah Gottschalk of Richmond, Indiana. "It's such a nice change from the usual baked potato...and healthier, too!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon minced jalapeno pepper, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • Dash salt

Directions

  • 1. Scrub and pierce sweet potato. Bake at 400° for 40-45 minutes or until tender.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, syrup, jalapeno if desired, lime juice, hot pepper sauce and salt. Cut sweet potato in half; top with sour cream mixture. Yield: 2 servings.
