These jalapeños are a pleasant explosion of sweet and spicy flavors that will make your tastebuds happy!


Prepare the Sweet Potato Filling

1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add sweet potatoes and cook for 20–25 minutes or until tender.
2. Drain the sweet potatoes and mash. Add cinnamon and one tablespoon maple syrup. Set aside.
3. Spray a baking tray with oil spray. Remove stems from jalapeños and slice in half lengthwise. Remove seeds and white membrane from inside jalapeños (if you like it spicy, don’t remove all of the membrane). Place sliced jalapeños on baking tray.
4. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15–20 minutes. Remove from oven.
