"Spicy, sweet and smoky, this side dish is perfect alongside grilled pork tenderloin. It's also a great change to your Thanksgiving dinner. Again, it's SPICY! This can be made ahead and stored in 200 degree oven until the rest of the meal is ready. For those of you who like less spicy, remove the seeds of the chipotle or cut down to one pepper and one tablespoon of adobo sauce. You can always add more later." — CreativeCook

I submitted this recipe and the webmasters changed it. I do not add cream and I make mine much healthier. I just use a T or two of butter or spread and steam my sweet potatoes in the microwave in a bag. I love these potatoes!
Way too spicy. I couldn't taste anything but the peppers.
These are terrific. I tossed the potatoes with olive oil and roasted in covered dish. (Just think it gives a better flavor). Per another review, I used only 1 Tbs. butter. You can also cut the fat by using evaporated milk. Sooo good. Find the chipotles in the Mexican section of your market. The leftover chilies can be placed in Ziploc, squeeze out air and put in freezer for another use. They are great in homemade salsa, too.
I followed the instructions of the original poster and used a T of butter only and did NOT add any cream. This was delicious and SO EASY! If you dont like spice then cut the pepper ingrediants by half or up the amount of potatos you use. We LOVE spice so we thought it was GREAT! Awesome way to pep up sweet potatoes!
I love these two items and never thought to put them together. They mesh so well! I was in a hurry so nuked the sweet potato before mashing and baking but I do like the taste better of potatoes cooked in the oven so will do that next time. Also, I like really spicy food so added extra chipotle. I almost always have sweet potatoes around and since I froze the remaining chipotles in seperate containers I can whip this up on a whim. Will definitely add this to the side dish rotation.
We liked these a lot. I followed the submitter's review and left out the cream and only used about 1 T of butter. Next time I think I will reduce the adobos/adobo sauce a bit because it was a tad on the spicy side for us. That's just personal preference, though.
Awesome idea for mashed potatoes. I followed the submitter's instructions and steamed my potato in the microwave and skipped the cream. I also skipped the butter, and didn't miss it. Just mashed sweet potatoes and chopped chipotle chilies - and it was DELICIOUS!
Made this to use up some leftover chipotle peppers. Not bad, will defintely make again. Just have to watch the amount of chipotle used if you're not used to spicy food.
