Prep Time: 20 min. Well, it took me an hour! It was worth it though. Wow, these are really good. They make great leftovers too. The sweet potato gives it a really interesting taste, and I love the lime sour cream dip. I’d never thought to put jalapeno chiles and lime juice in sour cream.


Healthy These patties are pretty healthy because they’re broiled in the oven, instead of fried.

Vegan Leave out the egg. Substitute dairy sour cream for tofu sour cream.
