Sweet & Spicy Sweet Potato with Walnuts
1 cooked sweet potato, still hot
Butter, approx 1/2 Tbs
Real maple syrup, approx scant 1/4 cup
Coarsely chopped walnuts, approx scant 1/4 cup
Cinnamon, approx 1/8 tsp
Dash (or more) ground habanero powder, preferably smoked habanero (use ground cayenne or red pepper for less heat)
Split open the sweet potato and use a fork to slightly break up each half. Add the butter and use the fork to gently incorporate it into the two halves as the butter melts (you don't need to thoroughly mix it in; the goal is simply to have some butter on both halves). Sprinkle with walnuts, cinnamon, and ground habanero powder to taste. Drizzle maple syrup on top, and enjoy. I use a spoon to get every last bit of goodness!
