Sweet Potato Skillet

Sweet potatoes are amazing, but after you've had baked one after baked one, they can get boring. So, I found a recipe for sweet potato chunks cooked in the skillet with only olive oil and a few spices! Here 'tis:

2 Large Sweet Potatoes
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

1. Peel and cut up sweet potatoes into 
chunks (this part is extremely difficult,
so make sure you have a good knife).

2. Heat olive oil in skillet on medium heat.
3. Once oil is heated, add potatoes and spices.

4. Cook for about twenty minutes, until potatoes are soft to eat.
(Stir occasionally.)
There you have it!
These potatoes tasted superb! The cayenne pepper gave them a nice kick while the cinnamon kept them sweet, and they were cooked until they were just tender enough to chew but not too soft. The only difficult thing about this recipe was cutting up the sweet potatoes, but I have to say it was completely worth it! If you're ever looking for a way to shake up the method in which you cook sweet potatoes, try this; you won't regret it. 

My Rating of the Sweet Potato Skillet: 10/10
