Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Chipotle Honey Lime Butter

Ok, so after my sweet potato post last week I have been wanting to make Sweet Potatoes.  I mean did you see those recipes?  They all looked awesome, right? {if you missed it, here is the Sweet Potato Recipe Roundup}

I am always looking to create another grill recipe, I pretty much have a love affair with my grill!  So with my desire for sweet potatoes and love for grilling why not throw those sweet potatoes on the grill, seems logical to me.  The only thing I was nervous about when making this side dish was making sure that I didn’t end up with a mess on the grill because the sweet potatoes stuck or that they ended up crunchy because I didn’t cook them long enough.  Let’s face it, no body likes a mess or a crunchy potato.  So in order to ensure optimal sweet potato success, I loaded those potatoes with olive oil and coated the grill as well.  So, mess was avoided.  Unfortunately, my sweet potatoes did come out a little crunchy.  I think I had the grill up to high so I had to turn them earlier than needed.  Be sure your grill is at medium to medium high heat so that you can grill each side for 4-8 minutes.  The Grilled Sweet Potatoes were still delicious despite their crunchiness.  {I actually just threw them in the microwave to cook them a little more and they were perfect.}  Top it off with the sweet and spicy Chipotle Honey Lime Butter, and you will be one happy camper with a healthy side dish!
