Prepared on the grill and paired with a spicy sauce, these sweet potatoes make a wonderful side with most any meal. Plus, they take only 20 minutes to make!
chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (from 7-oz can), finely chopped
tablespoons adobo sauce (from can of chiles)
medium sweet potatoes
cup olive or vegetable oil
teaspoons kosher (coarse) salt
Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, mix sauce ingredients; set aside.
Cut each sweet potato lengthwise into 4 or 5 slices; brush both sides with oil. Carefully brush additional oil on grill rack. Place potatoes on grill over medium heat; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the salt.
Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning once and sprinkling with remaining 1 teaspoon salt, until potatoes are tender. Serve with sauce.
