Paleo Creole Sweet Potato Mash

A side dish for that Louisiana Chicken! You didn’t think I’d just leave you hanging there with a skillet full o’ chicken, did ya?! Well, normally I would have, but, this New Orleans-Caribbeans vacay deserves way more love than just one measly chicken recipe! I’m bringing you three more!

This mash and slightly tangy, slightly sweet and chock full of flavor. I’d never had sweet potatoes with cilantro in them until our trip to The Big Easy and I have to say it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite things.
