SWEET POTATO ROUNDS WITH A PUNCH
Serves 4 to 6
2 pounds sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
Tajín Clásico Seasoning
Rinse and peel the sweet potatoes. Slice them into thin rounds of about ¼ inch.
Place oven racks on lower and upper thirds. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a small saucepan melt the butter over low heat. Once it melts pour in the olive oil, combine and remove from the heat.
Brush the butter/oil mix onto the bottom of two large baking sheets. Place the sweet potato rounds in a single layer. Brush the tops with more of the butter/oil mix. Sprinkle generously with Tajín Classic Seasoning. Flip rounds on to the other side and sprinkle generously with Tajín. Place in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until they have started to brown. Remove baking sheets. With a set of tongs or a pair of forks, flip the sweet potato rounds. Place back in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes more, until they have browned on both sides. Don't let them burn.
Remove them from the oven. As they cool a little, their edges will crisp a bit more. Serve hot or not: either way they are delicious!
Sounds simply yummy.Toni | November 15, 2012 6:42 PM
Your English is quite good, both in speaking and writing. Did you speak the language when you grew up in Mexico? Did you learn how to cook from your mother or grandmother? Honestly, I did not like Mexican food until I saw your show. Thank you for introducing your kind of Mexican food to me and the audience of America.
That is such a creative use for Tajin! I always have it on hand since we like it on fruit, but sometimes I'd like to try something different with it. Yum!!Naomi | November 20, 2012 8:16 PM
Gracias, Toni!!Pati Jinich replied to comment from Toni | November 21, 2012 1:45 PM

Hola Lily, I took a little English in school, but mostly learned from living in the United States. Thank you for watching the show!Pati Jinich replied to comment from Lily | November 29, 2012 1:34 PM
So happy we found your show in PBS. We just left Mexico City 5 years ago and my daughter ask me for our food all the time. She loves the stories you tell about the DF. And my husband is so grateful about the pastel imposible. Now I have more ideas to cook, I hope you can include tamales recipes for this winter! and churros (extrañamos El Moro) My girl loves tamales verdes , Gracias Pati :)Norma | November 30, 2012 7:21 PM
Hola Norma, Mexico City is my favorite place in the world so eat, so it's no wonder your family misses the food so much! I have a sweet tamales recipe that would be good for the winter: http://patismexicantable.com/2011/06/blackberry-and-pecan-tamales.html. No tamales verdes or churros yet - but I will try to get recipes up soon. Thank you so much for watching the show!!Pati Jinich replied to comment from Norma | December 3, 2012 10:16 AM
Where can the Tajin Classic Seasoning be purchased? I live in San Antonio. ThxJolanda Bradley | December 28, 2012 9:41 PM
I love your show, I always watch it (i record it so that I can watch it to give it my full attention) I also love the theme song, please tell me the name of the song and artist. Thank you
Hola Jolanda, They should carry Tajin Classic Seasoning in the international section of your grocery store. If you can't find it there, look for it at your local Latin market.Pati Jinich replied to comment from Jolanda Bradley | January 2, 2013 6:08 PM
Hola May, Thank you so much for watching the show!! The song is "Dame" by Domingo Siete!Pati Jinich replied to comment from May | January 2, 2013 6:13 PM
Hi Patti, I have been watching and recording our shows now for several weeks. I'm so glad I found you. I have been inspired. My family was getting tired of eating the same old "Mexican food" since it tends to be a daily diet in our home. We're Mexican American. Now that I have watched your show, I have introduce a few new recepies, and the kids love it, and so does my husband. Thank you for you and your show.
