Chili and Lime Sweet Potatoes

I love sweet potatoes, but I normally only eat them around the holidays smoothered with brown sugar and butter. This simple recipe makes a light and refreshing sweet potato, with just a hint of heat, that is perfect for warm weather!

Chili and Lime Sweet Potatoes
·1 medium sweet potato
·2 tsp butter
·Dash of salt
·3-4 squirts of bottled lime juice
·A few dashes of chili powder
·A few sprigs of fresh cilantro

Cook sweet potato in the microwave as you would a baked potato. Top with remaining ingredients and serve immediately.
