Chili Lime Roasted Sweet Potatoes 🍠🌶

Sweet Potatoes and Yams are something we eat A LOT of at our house!

It’s funny because 10 years ago, I didn’t care for them AT ALL.

Throughout my 30’s I began passionately learning about health & nutrition while working with a phenomenal fitness trainer. Sweet potatoes just kept coming up as THE complex carbohydrate of choice! Sweet Potatoes were always on my meal plans – so that’s when I got creative and started roasting them, eating them frequently, and actually TRULY ENJOYING them.

Not a week goes by these days that I don’t buy and cook sweet potatoes or yams…they are an absolute staple.

This recipe is awesome if you’re trying to include sweet potatoes more often, but just need a good & tasty recipe, along with a little friendly nudge to try em! (TRY THESE ASAP!)

4-6 servings


  • zest and juice of one lime
  • 3 Tbsps unrefined coconut oil, or avocado oil (melted if using coconut)
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp chili flakes, or more if desired
  • 1-1/2 lbs. sweet potatoes or yams
  • coarsely chopped fresh cilantro, for serving


Crumbled cotija cheese & fresh lime wedges to garnish


Preheat your oven to 425 degrees f.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk lime zest, juice, oil, sea salt and chili flakes.

Rinse and scrub your sweet potatoes thoroughly to remove any dirt. Pat the excess moisture with a paper towel.

Carefully cut your potatoes into large pieces using a very sharp knife.

Add your potato pieces onto the bowl of prepared lime dressing, tossing until very well coated.

Now spread the potatoes onto your prepared baking sheet in a single layer, with space in between, and bake for 30 minutes flipping halfway through until fork tender and nicely browned.

Once done, remove from the oven and transfer to a serving platter.

Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves, and crumbled cotija cheese if desired. Serve while warm and enjoy!
