Packet Grilled Sweet Potatoes

I’m always on the lookout for good sweet potato recipes. I am trying to find new and different flavor combinations. I was really excited when I found this Bobby Flay recipe on the Food Network website for sweet potatoes grilled with lime and cilantro. Grilled Cilantro Sweet Potato Packets

These sweet potatoes have a really nice flavor. Not too hot. They were a hit at our barbeque. I was too lazy to do all the steps of pre microwaving, so I threw everything in a foil packet. (Actually, 2 foil packets.)
