  1. Oh My God! What a fantastic idea using sweet potato cubes as a substitute for taco chips. I’m going to serve this from now on! I have all the ingredients and I’m going to make it in a few minutes for our dinner. It’s 1:30am and my husband and I came home from work a half hour ago. I was looking for a different way to cook sweet potatoes and I know I hit the jackpot!
    I’m not going to tell the hubb what I’m making, he’ll be so surprised!
