  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes (washed and dried, preferably organic (about 4 medium sized))
  • 3 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • salt to season


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. If using non-organic sweet potatoes, peel skin. Cut sweet potatoes in to 1" wedges and place in large mixing bowl. Add oil, paprika, cinnamon, and chili powder and stir until potatoes are evenly coated. Place skin side down on large greased baking sheet. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or potatoes can easily be pierced by fork. Sprinkle with salt and serve.
