Chipotle Sweet Potatoes Taste Good

December 31, 2012
Plain English Version

Sweet potatoes are among the healthiest foods. When served in a meal with at least 3-5 grams of fat, the positive effect of beta-carotene in the sweet potatoes is increased.

Chipotle peppers are smoked jalapeño peppers. The recipe below includes canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.

Chipotle Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Serves 2

2 medium sweet potatoes, about 1 pound

Salt to taste

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 canned chipotle peppers

1 teaspoon of canned adobo sauce

1 sliced scallion, green parts only

 

Peel and cube the sweet potatoes.

Place in a medium saucepan and cover with cold, salted water by an inch or so.

Bring to a boil over high heat, and then reduce to simmer.

Cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, finely chop the chipotle peppers.

Drain sweet potatoes, add butter, and mash with a hand masher.

Add chipotle peppers and adobo sauce, and blend to combine completely.
