Chile Glazed Sweet Potato Wedges
Chile Glazed Sweet Potato Wedges are a sweet and spicy side dish. The chile glaze compliments the natural sweetness of the sweet potatoes. We use our New Mexico Medium Red Chile Powder for the chile powder. It’s smooth, medium spicy, adds a flavor not found in other chile powder.
Serve the Sweet Potato Wedges as an appetizer, or side dish. They pair up perfectly with burgers, ribs, roasted or BBQ chicken and so many more dishes. We’re sure you’ll figure out other dishes to serve them with.
1 ½ Pounds (2 to 3 Medium) Sweet Potatoes
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 Teaspoon New Mexico Medium Red Chile Powder
2 Tablespoon White Sugar
1 Teaspoon Kosher Flake Salt
½ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
Preheat oven to 425ºF. Set rack in middle position. Cut each potato lengthwise into 6 wedges.
Place potato wedges, oil, New Mexico Red Chile Powder, sugar, salt and pepper in a large zip storage bag. Gently toss the wedges in the bag to evenly coat them.
Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Transfer the potato wedges to the baking sheet, skin side down.
Roast potatoes about 15 to 20 minutes until fork tender. Check after 15 minutes so they don’t overcook and burn. Adjust salt and pepper if needed. If you like spicier, you can even sprinkle a bit more chile powder on them. Enjoy!
