You may think it’s more work to bake something twice, but it actually couldn’t be easier! Krista Numbers from Simplify Supper joined us with her non-traditional recipe for sweet and spicy twice baked sweet potatoes. 

Sweet and Spicy Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes


  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, about 3 pounds, scrubbed
  • 1 red chili, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Poke holes all over sweet potatoes and wrap each in foil.
  3. Place on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet and roast until potatoes are tender, 60–70 minutes. 
  4. Unwrap and let sit until cool enough to handle.
  5. Increase oven temperature to 450°.
  6. Meanwhile, combine chile, honey, and butter in a small saucepan; season with salt.
  7. Bring to a simmer over low heat, stirring to combine.
  8. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar.
  9. Smash sweet potatoes with your palm, then tear into bite-sized pieces (including skin), the more irregular, the better.
  10. Place in a large bowl and add half of hot honey (do not include chile); season with salt.
  11. Arrange pieces, skin side down, in a single layer on an unlined rimmed baking sheet and roast until browned and crisp around the edges, 20–25 minutes.
  12. Drizzle with remaining hot honey with chile.
