Sweet Potato Rounds

 – 1 large sweet potato

 – 1-2 tablespoons Olive oil

 – 1/4 plain Greek yogurt

 – Cilantro to taste

 – Slice the sweet potato into thin rounds and lay flat on a baking sheet. Drizzle the rounds with olive oil and season with the garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper.
