  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Wash the potatoes and slice them into ¼-inch slices or “coins.” Place them in a bowl and add the oil, cumin, paprika and salt. Toss to combine well. Arrange the potato coins on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast in the oven 10 minutes, then flip and roast another 10 minutes until tender.
  3. Remove the tray from the oven and sprinkle the coins with equal amounts of cheese. Return the tray to the oven and cook an additional 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted.
  4. Meanwhile, make the chipotle crema by mixing the yogurt, chipotles, adobo sauce and lime juice together in a small bowl.
  5. Arrange the sweet potato coins on a serving platter. Top each with a dollop of chipotle crema. Garnish with scallions.
