Chipotle Mashed Sweet Potatoes


2 large sweet potatoes

1 tbsp adobo sauce (from a can of chipotle chilies in adobo sauce)

2 tbsp butter, softened

1/2 tsp salt

3-4 dashes Tabasco raspberry chipotle hot sauce (optional but really delicious!)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Once hot, place sweet potatoes in the oven and roast for 45 minutes until very soft.

When sweet potatoes are done, remove from the oven and squeeze flesh out into the bowl of a KitchenAid (you don't have to use an electric mixer here -- alternately, you could mash by hand with a potato masher. I just love the convenience of my Kitchen Aid!).

Also in the bowl, add the soft butter, adobo sauce, salt and raspberry chipotle hot sauce. Mix until smooth and creamy and season with additional adobo sauce or salt to taste.
