Grilled sweet potato slices are paired with a spicy, creamy sauce with a hint of smoke. Serve this easy grilled side dish alongside grilled chicken, steak or veggie burgers. (The sweet potato slices are also delicious without sauce or with store-bought condiments like chipotle mayo.)

  • Place sweet potatoes on oiled grill rack (see Tip); grill, uncovered, until grill marks appear on both sides and the sweet potatoes are tender, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with cilantro (or scallions), if desired; serve with the chipotle sauce.

Tip

To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)
