Baked Sweet Potatoes with Spicy Blue Cheese

I was going through my fridge last night and wondering what I was going to cook up for dinner.  I really wasn't in the mood for a BIG meal; however my taste buds were all over the place and in need of some satisfaction.  I wanted something a little sweet, salty, spicy, and tangy.  What would it be?  I continued to look.  There they were.  The answer to my craving hiding in the very back of my fridge.  Two medium size SWEET POTATOES.  I was sold.  Baked sweet potatoes it was.  I decided to bake the sweet potatoes with a little olive oil, Kosher salt, and cayenne pepper and topped them with blue cheese crumbles and cilantro.  Sweet, check.  Salty, check.  Spicy, check.  Tangy, check.  And a little bit of green, check.  I was HAPPY and satisfied, CHECK.
