It was good idea until you used canola oil, the worst oil to use for anything; much better oil is sunflower! I never eat any food (or salad) with canola, corn, soybean or vegetable oil; I use mostly olive, coconut, sunflower, safflower oils; coconut oil can't be used for high temperature cooking.

In addition to cayenne pepper, I add garlic salt, cumin and paprika.
I love sweet potatoes. What a great way to get everyone to eat them!
I can make this a five star recipe (for my personal tastes), and have done so several times. I substitute a little Splenda and cinnamon for the pepper. Now THAT's a snack. Satisfies the sweet tooth without killing the nutritional advantages. But you have to be careful not to eat too much -- there is a law of diminishing returns if you overdo your consumption of something that tastes so good. This is great as either a snack or a side dish with lean pork tenderloin. Fall is the season for great sweet potatoes, and I live only 30 miles from Opelousas, Louisiana, the self-proclaimed yam capital, and home of the annual "Yambilee Festival."
