Preheat oven to 425 °F (220 °C).

In a saucepan, cook sweet potatoes with onion in boiling salted water for 20 minutes.

Melt butter in a small saucepan and add chili powder and pepper. Quarter tomatoes and place in an oven-safe baking dish. Add 2 tbsp (30 mL) spiced butter and garlic cloves.

With a brush, butter each sheet of phyllo and fold in half. Place a slice of cheese at the end and butter the edges. Fold each edge over the cheese and roll up the phyllo starting at the cheese end to seal it inside. Brush with butter. Place feuilletés on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in oven, along with tomatoes, for 15 minutes.

Mash sweet potatoes until smooth. Season with pepper and add basil. Serve feuilletés hot over sweet potato purée and garnish with tomatoes and basil leaves.
