Sweet Potato Chipotle Gratin

Sweet Potato Chipotle Gratin

2 1/2 cups heavy cream

2 tablespoons pureed chipotle peppers

3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced thin

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine the heavy cream and the chipotle puree. Place a fourth of the sweet potato slices in the prepared baking dish. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then pour a fourth of the cream mixture over the sweet potato slices. Repeat the layers with the remaining sweet potatoes and cream mixture, forming four layers. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until potatoes are browned and cream has been absorbed. Allow to sit for 10 minutes after removing from oven before serving.
