What a simple and tasty side dish that is so full of flavor! With only five total ingredients, this dish is easy to prepare. The chipotle pepper gives just a hint of spicy flavor, a nice contrast against the sweet potatoes. I served mine with pan-seared salmon, but this side dish would also go well with chicken or pork tenderloin. Delish!
