Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Actually, this isn't a recipe, it's a story.

A few months ago the wife was away and I was on my own for dinner, and without much time to cook. I put a sweet potato in the oven, plated it when it was done, split it open, a little fake butter and a healthy dose of cinnamon. Yum. I was ready to eat.

One of the features of living with a spouse in the sauce business is that she often has samples in the kitchen. And a large, clear container of a powdered brown substance is not necessarily cinnamon.

In this case, it was habanero powder. With a healthy dose.

Really. A lot of it.

I like my food very spicy, so it wasn't too hot to eat, but what a surprise!
