This is my favorite recipe for kicked up, spicy sweet potatoes. I made it for several get-togethers and it was always a hit. I have also used monterey jack chees in place of the gruyere cheese. The best!

Outstanding recipe! Very rich, flavorful and delicious! I used chipotle powder instead of dried chipotles. I heated the cream in the microwave and whisked in the powder. Then assembled and baked as directed. Fantastic holiday dish. Thanks for sharing!

This was good and very different. I skipped the boiling step and used jalapeno peppers since that was what I had. We liked the heat that they brought to the dish. Scaled this down for the two of us and used 1/2 and 1/2 to cut some of the calories. Thanks
