Pasolivo - Olive Oil - Cook - Spicy Lime Sweet Potato Spread

Spicy Lime Sweet Potato Spread

With football season and family get-togethers, it’s always good to have a quick little spread you can put out. Served warm, this is super flavorful and makes you want to wrap up in a blanket to watch the game. Serve with tortilla chips (especially good with blue chips – great fall colors.)


2 big or 3 small sweet potatoes or yams
2 large minced garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon hot sauce (any kind)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup juice from 2 limes
2/3 cup Pasolivo Lime olive oil
2/3 cup chicken broth


Cook the potatoes in the microwave until soft, 10 – 12 minutes, or roast until soft. When cool enough to handle, pull away the peel.

Pour all ingredients except the Pasolivo Lime olive oil and chicken broth into a food processor and puree. With the machine running, gradually add the Pasolivo Lime olive oil. Continue, adding the broth (through the feeder tube of processor) until the spread is light and silky.

Serve with thick cut potato chips or crackers.
