    SugaredAlmond's Note:

    I must admit, I find it really hard to make anything without chilies and garlic, which is probably why I don't make many desserts really. This is a great spicy, savoury mash, and it isn't too bad fat-wise either. Use a flavoured cream cheese or greek yogurt if you prefer

      I've never thought of using cream cheese with sweet potatoes before (even though I love them with russets) but it added a wonderful creamy texture. The green chilies combine nicely with the garlic and red pepper. Thanks for a new way to fix sweet potatoes that doesn't require a lot of sugar! Roxygirl

      Outstanding! This is creamy and spicy and delicious in every way. The recipe makes two very large servings...which you'll be grateful for. I'll certainly be making this one again. Thanks!

      The only change I made to the recipe was to omit the red bell pepper as my husband doesn't care for the taste. Very nice flavor and texture! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
