Easy Skillet Sweet Potatoes with Cilantro

As you can see in the skillet sweet potatoes recipe below, there are not too many ingredients.  All you will need are some sweet potatoes, onion, oil, seasonings, cilantro and green onions.
These easy skillet sweet potatoes still taste pretty good without the green onions and cilantro, but can I tell you something?!  Don’t skip on these key ingredients!!  (Unless you are part of the 10% of the population that thinks cilantro tastes like soap.  I will give you a free pass here.)
