Recipe by SUBEAR
"This dish is a favorite in our home during the holiday season. The smoky heat of the chipotle chile and the sweet potato's natural sweetness balance each other beautifully. Adjust the amount of chipotle peppers to suit your taste, and don't overbeat the potatoes so they keep some chunky texture."

minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
unsalted butter, room temperature and cut into chunks
Really good! Suprisingly so. Does not need any extra sweetness. Goes well with "Balsamic Glazed Salmon Fillets," also on this site. Perfect meal!
This needs 2 or 3 times as much chipotle peppers and adobo sauce for my taste- I was worried about it having too much spice so I made the recipe as stated but the sweet potatoes were still too sweet for us.
This recipe was AMAZING, though I have to admit, I doctored it to suit my sweet tooth. I added a few table spoons of brown sugar to the mashed potatoes and chipotle peppers, and before I baked it in the casserole dish, I added a brown sugar and pecan topping to the top. YUM. This recipe is coming with me to the Thanksgiving Table.
Fabulous. This was eaten up by even my non-sweet potato eaters and my die-hard sweet potato/marshmallow casserole lovers. I added a bit of maple syrup to give a little more sweetness and flavor and adjusted the amount of chipotles for the small kids in my family.
Great recipe. I added some brown sugar to the top (as recommended by others) so it would caramelize a bit while baking. I tasted the mix before the brown sugar was added and after with the brown sugar was much better. It adds just a touch of sweet to counteract the smokey heat from the Chipotle. So easy to make.
I just made this recipe with about 5 sweet potatoes mashed and two whole chipotle peppers (plus some added adobo sauce) and brown sugar and boy was it good!! next time I might try scraping some of the seeds out first for a smoother texture.
I am not normally a fan of Sweet Potatoes because they are usually made too sweet for me. I made this with canned yams (that I already had on hand), drained well and added no extra sweet anything, and I am now a fan of these for sure. Will have to make them with fresh before I can give 5 stars, but the canned worked nicely.
This was fabulous! Even with only half the chipotle peppers, it was plenty hot and the smoky flavor still came through. They made a nice complement to the buttery sweetness of the sweet potatoes. This will definitely become a regular at our house. Thanks for sharing!
