The fritters were pretty bland. They were okay for a first try, but not sure that I will be making these again. Like someone else said, the beans were good though, will be making those again.
Sweet Potato Fritters with Smoky Pinto Beans
From EatingWell: September/October 2010
These easy sweet potato fritters have a crispy crust and a tender middle. The beans are flavored with smoked paprika, but sweet or hot would work well too. To give it a Mexican-inspired twist, use chili powder as the spice instead of the paprika.

Based on others comments bout lack of flavor I added a little cinnamon and nutmeg....still didn't help! I will make the beans again, but not the fritters
I'm not sure how these could lack flavor. I did go a bit heavier with the salt, as I usually do, and I think my sweet potato may have been larger than a pound, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. My fritters were moist and delicious on the inside and the beans were spicy and smoky. Perhaps my store just had particularly spicy poblanos? My family loved them, although the beans were a bit spicy for my toddler. I'd eat these a couple times a month, definitely.
I should have read the reviews before making this o I could have added more spices. I liked it as is once I added some salsa to eat with the fritters. The beans were fantastic though!
This recipe was so bland and dry. It was a waste of time to make :(
