Ancho Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes

These are delectable, deeply braised sweet potatoes. Ancho is a smoky, sweet chilli powder. Together with the maple syrup, the ancho infuses a remarkable flavor to these sweet potatoes that is totally addictive. A perfect side anytime but especially nice at Thanksgiving.http://www.thespicehouse.com/spices/ancho-pepper to order quality ancho spice powder. If you don't have ancho powder, use regular smoked paprika or a touch of cayenne and regular paprika. I assure you this recipe will become a new staple side dish at your house.
