    We really enjoyed this both warm and cold. I added the onion to the potatoes in the oven during the last 15 minutes of roasting to soften it up. Make sure to roast your sweet potatoes until they get some color from caramelization.  -  23 May 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is pretty basic but it is good. It (salt/pepper/cumin/cilantro/lime) can be adjusted based on the individuals taste.  -  24 Nov 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great flavor! Love to serve this dish when we are having a taco dinner and vegan/vegetarian friends are over.  -  16 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
