    Cook's tips

    Choose medium-sized sweet potatoes to make good chunky chips. The chips can be prepared in advance - just soak them in water until ready to use, drain, dry and season as above.


    Roast the sweet potatoes in their jackets in a preheated oven at 200°C, gas mark 6 for 45 minutes, then split open and mash the chilli nut butter into them. Alternatively, omit the tomato purée, chilli powder, cocoa powder and add finely chopped coriander instead.
