How to make it

    It seems like poblanos tend to vary quite a bit in heat. How much heat do you suggest in this recipe?

    Starchy, white-fleshed types are sometimes called batatas or boniatos, from generic Spanish terms for all types of sweet potato.
    I bought mine at a whole foods - they are usually right next to the yams. I never really noticed them until I bought them by accident one time and loved them. Also throw them on the barbeque with a little olive oil when I am cooking steak, and get great reviews (from my hubby and friends)

    I have not seen white sweet potatoes. Where can I get them? Recipes sounds really, really good.

    This sounds delicious! I think Hubby will really like this and I have all the ingredients at this time so there is absolutely no excuse for me not to try it. Will let you know how it went. Thanks!
