Mealthy tip:

Baking sweet potato noodles in an even layer and stirring from the outside edges towards the center will ensure the noodles cook evenly. Mexican crema is similar to Crème Fraiche and it’s consistency is thinner than sour cream.

This was such a well rounded, flavorful dish. From the sweet potatoes to the cumin to the Mexican crema, every ingredient of this recipe was well thought out. I thoroughly enjoyed! Even though I prefer to make my sweet potato noodles in a skillet on the stove, the crispiness of the sweet potato noodles from baking in the oven was one of my favorite aspects of this dish.

All of these "exotic sounding" ingredients were available at my local Trader Joes! I have never cooked with crema or spiralized sweet potatoes but this is a really delicious recipe. Both my husband and 2 year old loved it and thats a major win at my house. Great recipe!
