Roasted Chili-Lime Sweet Potatoes

Snow on the ground, more can at least let your taste buds go somewhere a little more tropical with these slightly addictive sweet potatoes.

1 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 Tbsp canola, olive, or walnut oil
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp salt
1/2 - 1 tsp chili powder

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Toss the sweet potatoes in a bowl with the oil, lime juice, salt, and chili powder until well coated. Spread them out in a single layer on a baking sheet (use parchment paper for less mess if you like). Bake for 30-30 minutes, until tender and just slightly crisp on the outside. Serve hot.

Serves about 4.
