I dont' particularly like sweet potatoes so I used a jewel yam. I was also so impressed with the article in the same issue about Santa Fe peppers that when I saw a Hatch pepper at my local market, I used that instead. Surprisingly, my very picky husband who usually does not like things like this at all, liked it very much. The lime wedge didn't do much for us - we agree it needs some sort of sweet sauce. I have a spicy apricot jam that I may use some of for next time. I ended up with about 8 of these guys and so froze half of them for future use. I just defrosted one for lunch - super easy, great for food on the go.
