Slow Cooker Spicy Sweet Potatoes Recipe from Kalyn's Kitchen

These Spicy Sweet Potatoes made in the slow cooker are not just for Thanksgiving!

(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and these Spicy Sweet Potatoes in the slow cooker are great.  This recipe is also a good example of how you can use the slow cooker for Thanksgiving (which will be here before you know it!)

When I discovered a seasoning blend I adored for Spicy Sweet Potato Fries, I couldn't resist trying it on sweet potatoes cooked in the slow cooker, and this recipe for Spicy CrockPot Sweet Potatoes from Kalyn's Kitchen is the happy result.  If you cook them on high the sweet potatoes will be fragrant and tender in about 3 hours, and you can keep them warm in the slow cooker for a while if needed, so they're great for busy days.

I made these in the new Crock-Pot Casserole Crock Slow Cooker, which worked especially well because we browned them in a very hot oven for about 20 minutes after they were done. But if you don't have this type of slow cooker, any large oblong slow cooker will work.
