    Hot Dang, Mike. Really sounds good. Menu is already set so will have to twist some arms. If I am not successful, I will be doing it soon.

    Thanks for the recipe Mike, I can tell by the contents that it is a tasty side dish. Warms my heart to know some folks are willing to try chile on something new. Keep up the good ideas, and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Rich, this IS a good recipe, tasty. Not much adventure in new tastes here on SMF though.
    I like a bit of heat, sometimes more than a bit. [​IMG]

    Nice recipe Mike - thanks for sharing! If you really want a good sweet potatoe flavor don't boil them steam them or wrap them in a damp towel and nuke em for about 5 to 7 minutes then peel em. yummmmmm!

    I am sure this will be great. The other smoked potato recipe was fantastic. Done smoked sweet potatoes also, in fact, will do some more tomorrow. One of my wifes favorites, thanks to you [​IMG]
