Chili Lime Sweet Potatoes

 “The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.” -Jimmy Johnson 

Break the mold! Think outside of the box! Choose sweet potatoes for a healthier side dish! 

These light and tangy sweet potatoes taste great with just a small amount of spice. Gather up your ingredients, mix, pour over sweet potatoes & bake – it’s that simple. If you don’t have agave nectar on hand, no worries! Maple syrup or plain sugar can be substituted in this recipe.
