These Spicy Sweet Potatoes made in the slow cooker are a delicious easy side dish any time of year, and of course they’d be perfect for Thanksgiving too!
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.
Of course you can see from the photos that I used the Crock-Pot Casserole Crock Slow Cooker (affiliate link) for this recipe, but if you don’t have that wonderful slow cooker that’s shaped like a casserole dish, just use any large oval slow cooker to make these crockpot sweet potatoes!
And if you like sweet potatoes at all, this is a must-try recipe! Please don’t skip it because you have to buy some of the ingredients in the spice mix, because I promise that once you try this spice blend for sweet potatoes, you’ll make them using it over and over. And be sure to try it on Spicy Sweet Potato Fries as well!
