    These were very good. I made sure to cut them small so they cooked quicker. Only roasted 5 minutes longer than called for. Will make again.

    I love sweet potatoes and am happy I tried this recipe! I did need to bake the sweet potatoes for 45 minutes until they were tender (ovens do vary) and I used two fresh jalapeño peppers from my garden instead of the chipotle peppers, as well as fresh cilantro from my garden. It turned out great and was enjoyed by all at my BBQ!

    I made this for my husband and he said the cilantro was overpowering.

    Terrific! Next time I'm going to use only one chipotle pepper - they were very spicy!

    I've made this twice--the second time I didn't have cilantro, but it was great both times.
