Mashed Chipotle Sweet Potatoes – Thanksgiving Part Deux

28 Nov

I saw this recipe on one of the blogs I follow (http://www.hardlyhousewives.com) and knew I needed to bookmark it to try.

It was my job to bring the sweet potatoes to Thanksgiving this year, and I had already picked out my official recipe to try, but this NEEDED to be made and brought as well.

This looks amazing. And I knew it would taste so good, too!

I love recipes that have a little spice and kick to it.

And this one is healthy and simple!! No-brainer……look at all the flecks of pepper in there!

Here are some pics of my brothers and my dad from Thanksgiving! None of us could get focused for a pic…..I think we were all moving around too much.

 Fun times! I hope everyone has a happy and healthy holiday season!

Mashed Chipotle Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 2-4 Large Sweet Potatoes
  • 1-4 Canned Chipotles, chopped
  • 2 Tbs of Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Tbs of Honey
  • Kosher Salt and Pepper

Directions:

  • Wash and place potatoes (skin-on) in a large pot full of water that covers them. Boil them until they are fork tender, about 12-15 minutes. Drain pot and place potatoes on counter/plate to cool off.
  • When potatoes have cooled off, remove skin and discard.
  • Cut potatoes and place in bowl/pot and gently mash.
  • Put on gloves and chop peppers and place in potatoes. Stir together. Start out with 1-2 peppers and then taste to determine level of hotness. You can always add a little more heat by adding some of the sauce the chipotle peppers are canned in. I think for 5 potatoes, I used about 4-5 peppers…I like it hot!
  • Add your butter and honey and a healthy pinch of salt/pepper. Taste and then adjust.
