Expert Tips

  • Wondering how much prespiralized sweet potato to buy? We used about 13 ounces of swoodles in this recipe.
  • Here's how to cut a bell pepper like a pro: To start, cut 1/2 inch off top and bottom of pepper, then stand pepper upright. Next, cut one side of pepper from top to bottom, then lay pepper on its side. Cut all the way around inside of pepper to remove seeds and membranes. Then cut or slice pepper as desired.
  • Sweet potato spirals are also called sweet potato noodles or swoodles.
  • Save time by using prespiralized sweet potatoes.
