Sweet Potato Coins:

  • 1 ½ pounds (about 3 medium) sweet potatoes (choose long, narrow potatoes)
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¾ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 6 ounces cheddar cheese, grated

Chipotle Crema:

  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon minced chipotles in adobo
  • ½ teaspoon adobo sauce from the can
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • ¼ cup sliced scallions


  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Meanwhile, make the chipotle crema by mixing the yogurt, chipotles, adobo sauce and lime juice together in a small bowl.
  • Arrange the sweet potato coins on a serving platter. Top each with a dollop of chipotle crema. Garnish with scallions.
