Baked Sweet Potatoes with Maple Jalapeno Sour Cream

The first time I made this recipe I was thinking I wasn’t going to like it. I had been trying to incorporate more sweet potatoes into my dishes since they are healthier than regular white potatoes (which I absolutely love!!!), but so far I hadn’t really found a recipe that I enjoyed. I am just not a big fan of sweet potatoes unfortunately. I wish I were. But like I said before I didn’t think I would like this one either, but I was wrong! This has been the only sweet potato recipe that I crave. Looking at the ingredients I really wasn’t holding out much hope that I was going to like this recipe. But I was willing to try anything to find a sweet potato recipe I like. And it turns out, I actually LOVE this recipe! This baked sweet potato is full of flavors and textures. I could go on and on about it but I won’t. Because you should get that oven preheated and get it ready for these sweet potato bad boys.
