Dishes in Five Ingredients #SundaySupper - Baked Sweet Potato with Maple-Jalapeno Sour Cream



This week’s Sunday Supper is all about Dishes in Five Ingredients or less and is hosted by #SundaySupper Contributor Amber from Mama’s Blissful Bites.

You don't need a lot of ingredients to make something delicious!  Some of the best meals come out of what is in the pantry and "what's left in the fridge!"

Did you know?..........sweet potatoes are not even potatoes!  Not even distant cousins, twice removed.  Sweet potatoes are part of the Morning Glory family!

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Maple-Jalapeno Sour Cream

The skin forms a crispy, crackly crust and steams the potato.


4 sweet potatoes, scrubbed, dried
1/2 cup sour cream
1 Tb. pure maple syrup
2 tsp. seeded, minced jalapeno
1 tsp. fresh lime juice
Salt and Pepper to taste (a freebie)



Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. with rack positioned in the center.  Bake directly on rack for 40-45 minutes, or until soft when pierced.  Set a cookie sheet underneath just in case.
Combine sour cream, maple syrup, jalapeno, and lime juice;  chill until ready to serve.
Serve potatoes with sour cream mixture. Of course you can add bacon bits and scallions.  It's allowed!
