Ingredients
  • 1 12  ounce  sweet potato, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes (2 cups)
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 1/2  teaspoon  chili powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  cinnamon
  • 1/2  teaspoon  sugar

  • 2  teaspoons  Asian chili sauce (such as Sriracha sauce)
  • 1  tablespoon  soy sauce

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Oil a rimmed baking pan; set aside. Place sweet potato cubes in a bowl. Toss with the 1 tablespoon olive oil, the chili powder, cinnamon, and sugar. Spread in prepared pan; bake for 20 minutes or until tender.
