Grilling just got a lot more tasty with my Southwest Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges recipe!
It's a busy week for me. I just got back from Atlanta Monday and I'm heading to the Hammock Coast tomorrow for a few days off. I'll be sharing more about the trip on Instagram Stories. Before we left last week I asked the Hubs to fire up the grill for me for an experiment. I seriously need to learn to turn on the thing myself... but that's a story for another day. 🙂
I was hoping to figure out the best way to make delicious grilled sweet potato wedges. I love roasting veggies, but there is nothing like the grill on a beautiful, warm summer day.
Here's how to make my Southwest Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges recipe...
I was pretty certain that if I stuck large wedges on the grill, they'd take forever to cook, so I decided to boil whole them first to start the cooking process. I then cut them into wedges and seasoned them with some of my favorite Southwest spices like chipotle powder and smoked paprika. If you don't like spicy food you can skip the chipotle and use chili powder.
Boiling the potatoes first meant you only had to grill them for 5-10 minutes and it kept the consistency of the potato super moist.
To bring even more Southwest flavor I topped the wedges with cilantro!
My little sweet potato experiment was a total success. These delightful FIVE ingredient wedges are sure to be on our meal rotation for the rest of the summer.
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Happy grilling!
