Bergy (RIP" Forever in our Kitchen)

This recipe has great flavour. The chipotle and lime compliment and add to the natural flavour of the sweet potato. I cut the recipe back to 4 servings (One medium sweet potato) and still used 1 teaspoon of chipotle. We loved it. What I also liked was that I could prepare the recipe in the morning and reheated it for dinner. This recipe goes right into my vegetable recipe book.
