Sweet Potatoes with Chorizo and Sour Cream Tips:

  • A sweet potato has finished cooking when you are able to insert the tip of small knife into the thickest part of the potato and it slides in with no resistance.
  • Green onion could be substituted for cilantro as a garnish.
  • Dry-cured spicy chorizo sausage is found at the deli counter at the grocery store, usually next to the salami.
