Sweet, Dude.

My friend Kate recently introduced us to this simple and delicious sweet potato recipe. It didn't take long for us to try it at home, with our own spin...

Pithy Instructions for Delicious Crock Pot Sweet Potatoes

  • Mix equal parts chili powder, cumin, and salt in a small bowl. We used about 1 Tablespoon of each because we like a lot of flavor, and because we were making a lot of sweet potatoes.

  • Rub the seasoning on clean sweet potatoes.

  • Wrap each potato in tinfoil. We cheated and wrapped several of the small potatoes together, which seemed to work just fine.

  • Pile them all in the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours (the recipe says to cook on high, but low worked fine for us).

  • Serve with rice, black beans, salsa, cilantro, and avocado. Yes, please!
