Source: More Healthy Homestyle Cooking
4 baking potatoes or sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
Place an oven rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with
nonstick spray (I would use Olive Oil). Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into quarters.
Arrange in a single layer on the baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, paprika,cumin and salt.
Sprinkle over the poatoes and toss to coat the potatoes evenly. Coat the potatoes with nonstick spray (again I would
use the Olive Oil) and bake for 20 minutes, or until tender.

Sweet potatoes are a terrific source of fiber with more than 3 grams when baked in their skins. They are also loaded
with beta-carotene, providing more than 200 percent of the recommended levels of vitamin A. If you haven't tried a
sweet potato lately, don't hesitate. Baked or broiled, they're delicious. Add just a touch of brown sugar (I would use
brown sugar twin) or light butter(I would use light margarine) and you can't go wrong.
