Chilie Rubbed Grilled Sweet Potato Lollipops

This was another of Bobby Flay's creations in the Throwdown battle. I love mixing spicy with sweet, so I knew these would be delicious! The original recipe is found here, with a viniagrette, but we are ours dry (JJ put on a little butter).

Chilie Rubbed Grilled Sweet Potato Lollipops

6 tablespoons ancho chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon
fresh ground black pepper
4 sweet potatoes, scrubbed, par-cooked and slice into 1-inch thick slices, skin left on
Canola oil (omitted)
Freshly chopped cilantro leaves, for garnish (omitted)
Special equipment: 6-inch wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes

Steam the potato slices for 15 minutes, until tender. Skewer and lay on a plate.
Whisk seasonings in a small bowl, sprinkle all over the potatoes, flip and sprinkle over the other side.
Grill for 4-5 minutes per side, until seasonings form a crust.
