Adopted from the Recipezaar account. The original poster said: From Gourmet's November 2003 issue. Original recipe by Bobby Flay. I love the way the chipotle heat compliments the sweetness of the potatoes. No mini-marshmellows on these, please!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Farenheit.
  2. Prick the potatoes with a fork, and put them on the foil-lined baking sheet.
  3. Put the baking sheet on the middle rack, and bake until the potatoes are very soft, 1- 1 1/2 hours.
  4. While they are baking, butter a 2-quart shallow casserole dish.
  5. Chop the chilies, and crush them and the adobo sauce into a paste with a mortar& pestle.
  6. You should end up with about 1 tablespoon of paste.
  7. When the potatoes are soft, take them out and let them cool.
  8. Turn the oven down to 350.
  9. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, scoop out the soft flesh into a mixing bowl.
  10. Beat potatoes, chili paste, butter and salt with an electric mixer just until smooth.
  11. Spread in baking dish.
  12. Bake at 350 until hot-- 20-25 minutes.

I thought I would like the combination of sweet and spicy but it just wasn't what I was looking for. I love sweet potatoes and I love chipotle but I don't think I'm a fan of them together. This is strictly a personal preference thing. The potatoes were very fluffy and creamy and neither taste was overpowering and the recipe is definitely easy. Thanks moxie!
