  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 potato half)

Ingredients

  • 4 large sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine, melted
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preparation

Prepare grill.

Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Cook potato halves in boiling water 5 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain well. While potatoes are cooking, remove 3 tablespoons adobo sauce from canned chiles. Place remaining sauce and chiles in a zip-top plastic bag; freeze for another use. Combine 3 tablespoons adobo sauce, butter, cilantro, salt, and juice in a small bowl. Place potatoes on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until potatoes are done, basting frequently with orange juice mixture.
