Spicy-Sweet-Roasted Sweet Potatoes

We have never been a family to eat many sweet potatoes.
Yes.. I know they are jam-packed with nutrients.
Yes.. I know everyone says they are yummy.
Unless it was Thanksgiving, we just never made them.
So, of course the men-folk in the house swear they hate them.

Until last night!
These Spicy Sweet Potatoes are wonderful!
They are easy to make!
And, even die-hard sweet potato haters will devour them!
Mine sure did.
