Chili & Lime Sweet Potatoes

I love sweet potatoes.  I can just eat them plain with salt and pepper and I'm perfectly fine.  However, with the simple addition of chili powder and lime, it brought this to another level!  It was so good.  I admit, I ate more than intended!

Chili and Lime Sweet Potatoes
Adapted from As Good as Gluten

4 medium sweet potatoes
2 tbsp. butter
Salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 tsp. lime juice
1 tsp. chili powder

Peel and cut sweet potatoes into chunks.  Boil until tender, drain.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mash. I left a few chunks.  Taste and season as necessary.
