Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Chipotle Dip

Ingredients:
DIP:

  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/2 canned chipotle chile in adobo, seeds removed, chopped (about 1 Tbsp.)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

SWEET POTATOES:

  • Salt
  • 4 sweet potatoes (about 2 1/2 lb. total), peeled, halved lengthwise, each half cut into 4 wedges
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt

Directions:

  1. Make dip: Puree all ingredients in a food processor until smooth, with red and green flecks still visible. Cover and chill.
  2. Make sweet potatoes: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; add potato wedges. Cook for 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined tray; pat dry. Let cool. Preheat grill to medium. Oil grates.
  3. Toss potato wedges with oil; sprinkle with garlic salt. Grill potatoes, turning often, until just tender and slightly charred, 8 to 10 minutes. Just before serving, taste dip; add additional salt and pepper, if desired. Serve potato wedges with dip on the side.

Serves: 8
