Chipotle Sweet Potatoes

MmmmMMMmmmm chipotle sweet potaters. Spicy and sweet and a total twist on the traditional sugary sweet marshmallow sweet potatoes.  Perfect for Graciasgiving. 

 Whenever I type potato I have to keep myself from typing "potatoe."  Several years ago my Mom emailed my sister and I, asking us what we wanted on our 4th of July menu.  I wrote back, "potatoe salad."  My sister then responded, that she didn't want any "toes" in her potato salad.  I laughed and then cringed.  How many times had I spelled potato public?  Anyway, I've never made that mistake again.


Look at the little flecks of chipotles.  Love it.

2 Large Sweet Potatoes, peeled, chopped
1-2 Canned Chipotles, chopped 
1 Tbs of Unsalted Butter 
1 Tbs of Honey 
Sea or Kosher Salt

Boil the potatoes until they are fork tender, about 12-15 minutes. Drain, and then gently mash.  Add the chopped chipotle peppers.  Try the potatoes after 1 pepper.  You can always add a little more heat by adding some of the sauce the chipotle peppers are canned in.  Add your butter and honey and a healthy pinch of salt.  Taste and then adjust.  

Stay hungry!
