Thai Sweet Potatoes

I love Thai food, and I am always looking for ways to give recipes a Thai twist. One of my favorite foods is sweet potatoes. So tonight, I decided to give my sweet potatoes a little bit of Thai flair. I was so excited with the result!! These potatoes were smooth, sweet, and spicy! ENJOY!

Thai Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients:
4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks (about 2 pounds)
1/2 cup sweet Thai chili sauce
1/2 cup coconut milk
cilantro

Directions:
In 3-quart saucepan, cover potatoes with water.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender and then drain.
Return potatoes to saucepan and mash.
Stir in sauce and coconut milk.
Top with cilantro.
