Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Note: Chipotle chile peppers come packed in adobo sauce and are available in seven-ounce cans.
  2. Because you need such a small amount in this recipe, you can freeze what's left over in a heavy duty freezer bag for another use.
  3. Place sweet potato in saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until tender; drain.
  5. Return potatoes to pan.
  6. Add remaining ingredients; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth.

Bringing this to a potluck...and a bottle of wine. If I run into trouble, I'll send up a flare.

Fantastic! We ate with a roasted chicken with barbeque spices. This is a fun Southwestern theme, not too foreign and not too many ingredients. We will definately make again! I like that the spiciness can be adjusted by the amount of pepper seeds that are removed (or not) from the chipotle peppers. Thanks for posting, this was a big winner!

This is an amazing side dish. I used yams instead of sweet potatoes, and I baked instead of boiled them. The best part about this is that you can make it ahead of time and heat it in a crockpot if you're baking other things, say a turkey or ham. The dish is sweet, but not overwhelmingly so, and the chipotle gives it a unique kick.
