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.

HEALTH NOTE: 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.
