Hi guys!

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!

The Hubs and I ate them plain but they’d also be great dipped in my Chipotle Lime Greek Yogurt Ranch OR Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing.

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!

    These look delicious! I feel like I always end up grilling corn and zucchini, this would be fun to add to the mix.

    I used to not like sweet potatoes but I feel like I need to give them another chance. You know I LOVE spicy food so I may have to try these out. But with no grill, I’ll have to use an oven to try the recipe out.

    Hey Julie! I’ve been a little MIA (still reading when I can!) but I have been following along with you on Instagram. I am loving all your traveling! I have never heard of the Hammock coast but I can’t wait to see your adventures 🙂 These look fantastic! I do wonder how long it’d take to cook them on the grill without boiling. Save some pots and cleaning, lol. But really, I’m loving this idea and they look amazing!
