Sweet potato w/Maple Jalapeno Sour Cream

In my zeal to eat healthier I always buy a bunch of veggies, and then forget that I actually have to pair them up with meals.    Sometimes, when Jake is eating something else, I make the vegetable my entire meal   :)   Tonight was one of those nights.   I've been shifting some sweet potatoes around my kitchen for a week and since I wanted to test out my new microwave, I tossed one in and crossed my fingers.

While I was waiting, I threw together the Maple Jalapeno Sour Cream.    Next time I'll definitely make it ahead and let it chill a lot more, it melted down when it hit the warm potato, but it was still delicious!   My jalapeno wasn't that hot, so I upped the heat with the Franks.    It's such a great combination of sweet/sour, hot/cold, I really enjoyed it.     Thank you so much to Salsa for sharing the recipe!
