I love sweet potatoes any time of year, cooked any way.  I also love coconut EVERYTHING.  When I saw this recipe I thought, 'why of course' although I've never used coconut oil.  I had to wait several weeks before my local grocery store got a shipment of coconut oil in.  The stocker at the grocery store informed me "it's the worst thing you can eat", to which I replied "well, I find that hard to believe since you can't keep it on the shelf".  End of conversation.

I was looking to make a pretty simple chicken and rice dish.  However, after putting most of the cheeses in the fridge in this dish, I came up with this.  I named it Carnival because with all the colors, flavors and textures going on, that was the first word that came to mind.
