    I used olive oil (1 TBSP) instead if butter. Wanting to cut some if the fat from the recipe. Overall, the fam loved it !  -  16 Jan 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Sweet, spicy and better than I imagined it would taste. I didn't have any chipotle chili powder so I substituted cayenne pepper. Also, I used olive oil instead of butter. My husband loved it and said we should always use this recipe for roasted sweet potatoes. My teen son loved it so much he hugged me after dinner!  -  21 Mar 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made this for recipe group and it is a keeper for sure!!! The description said it all. Sweet, salty, spicy, and a flash of heat. I had to cut down just a tad on the chipotle as I have a heat wimp in the house. Will be making these again soon! Thanks Wfdm!  -  07 Jan 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
