Grilled Chili Lime Sweet Potatoes

Lindsay at Perfecting the Pairing





·        3 sweet potatoes, peeled and wedged

·        1.5 Tb olive oil

·        ¾ tsp salt

·        ½ tsp pepper

·        ½ tsp chili powder

·        Zest and juice of one lime




Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Add the peeled and wedged sweet potatoes.  Cook until they are just fork tender, but not fully cooked, about 12-15 minutes.  Drain and lay in a single layer to let the water evaporate. 


Preheat the grill to medium heat.  In a large bowl gently toss the sweet potatoes with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and chili powder.  Using tongs place the wedges on the grill.  Grill, turning occasionally, until they are cooked through and have grill marks on all sides.  Remove from the grill and sprinkle with the lime zest and juice.  Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
