Grilled Sweet Potatoes With Orange-Chipotle Glaze





Ingredients

    INGREDIENTS FOR 8 SERVINGS:
    4 large sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds)
    1 can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
    2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine, melted
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 (6-ounce) can thawed orange juice concentrate, undiluted
    Cooking spray


Directions

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Prepare grill.

2. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Cook potato halves in boiling
water 5 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Rinse with cold water;
drain well. While potatoes are cooking, remove 3 tablespoons adobo
sauce from canned chiles. Place remaining sauce and chiles in a
zip-top plastic bag; freeze for another use. Combine 3 tablespoons
adobo sauce, butter, cilantro, salt, and juice in a small bowl. Place
potatoes on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on
each side or until potatoes are done, basting frequently with orange
juice mixture. Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 potato half).

    Very good and a different taste for sweet potatoes. The spicy-hot grows with each bite. Perfect with grilled pork chops! - 3/9/07

  • i had some boneless pork ribs in the crockpot and was thinking about having a sweet potato with that for dinner. i found this recipe and decided to put the chilies and orange juice in the crockpot to flavor the meat and added the potatoes on top. smells great so far! - 1/11/11
