These Orange Guajillo Glazed Sweet Potatoes will add a little spice and citrusy sweetness to your traditional sweet potato side dish. They were a hit with my family, and I know they will be with yours.
With just a few ingredients and 30 minutes, you can serve a gourmet side dish to impress your family and friends and start a new holiday tradition.
In a sauce pan over medium heat mix together a 1/4 cup of orange marmalade with 1/4 cup of Red Guajillo salsa (I use Herdez Mexican Cooking Sauce), 1 tablespoon of honey and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and of crushed red pepper. Then salt and pepper to taste.
Take it off the stove and toss in the sweet potato cubes and stir to coat. Place the potatoes and glaze on a foil-covered baking dish and cover the top with file and bake for 20 minutes. Then uncover and bake for another 10 minutes.
It is so easy and tastes so wonderful, you have to give it a try. Leave a comment and let me know how you like it.
