Patio Party Potato Wedges

Your friends are getting hungary and while the meat is finishing on the barbecue, these potatoes are the best accompaniment to have on the table. That doesn’t include the beer/wine that has been chilling in a bucket of ice…you know I tell the truth…haha.

  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  •  2 tbsp. finely chopped shallots, divided
  •  2 tsp. chipotle hot pepper sauce
  •  2 tsp. fresh lime juice
  •  3 pounds red skinned sweet potatoes (yams), cut into 1/2 inch wedges,
    skin on
  •  3 tbsp. olive oil
  •  1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin

Whisk together the sour cream, 1 tbsp. shallot, chipotle sauce and lime juice in a small bowl. Set aside, covered in the refrigerator.

Remove 2nd rack in your oven. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine the wedges, oil and cumin in a large bowl, sprinkle with salt and pepper and arrange, cut side down, on 2 parchment lined cookie sheets.

Roast for 20 minutes, until tender and browning in a couple of spots. (reverse the 2 pans halfway through timing.)

Place these yummy things on a large platter and drizzle the cream mixture over. Place the remaining shallots in a small bowl and place on the table for people to help themselves if they want more.

These are yummy. As I said, the beer/wine is THE perfect addition and you can have a salad and rolls as well.
