"A spicy kick to sweet potatoes. You can add more chipotles for more heat, or more brown sugar for more sweetness."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place yams onto a baking sheet, and bake in the preheated oven until very soft, about 1 hour. Once done, allow to cool, then peel and place into a mixing bowl. Mash the chipotle chiles into a paste, and add to the potatoes along with the butter, brown sugar, and heavy cream. Mash until smooth, then season to taste with salt and pepper.

This dish is unique and amazingly wonderful! What a great contrast of sweet and hot, soft and a nice texture with the chopped chiles. I will make this again and again!


This is a fabulous dish. Followed the recipe.


These were more interesting than good. No, not bad; just didn't say "Mmmm!" with the first bite. 'More an "Ohhh" :D I used 3c mashed sweet potatoes, 1T chiles in paste (pureed), 2T each butter & brown sugar. No heavy cream. I may try it with corn. I like sweet & spicy together, but with sweets just didn't grab me.12/12 Tried the corn switch. Pretty good. Used 2T ea chipolte peppers, sugar, butter, cream with 3cans corn. Still a little too hot to have more than a few bites. 1T w 2cans might work better. 'Glad I tried it.
