Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet, but you can give them a different taste by using either sweet or savory ingredients. Some complimentary sweet ingredients include honey, brown sugar, cinnamon and marshmallows. Savory ingredients that pair well with sweet potatoes are garlic, chili powder, and cumin. Some dishes even combine the sweet and savory and they taste great.
