    Default Chipotle mashed sweet potatoes

    I love anything with chipotle but these are amazing!!!

    It's an old Cooking Light recipe.

    Chipotle Mashed Sweet Potatoes

    2 1/2 pounds cubed peeled sweet potato
    1/2 cup half-and-half
    3 tablespoons butter, softened
    2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    1 can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided

    Place potato in a saucepan, and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 15 minutes or until tender.
    Drain and return potato to pan. Add half-and-half, butter, and juice; mash to desired consistency. Cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring constantly.

    Remove 2 chiles from can and chop; reserve remaining chiles and adobo sauce for another use. Stir chopped chiles, brown sugar, salt, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon into potato mixture. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.

    Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup)

    I love chipotle, too, it goes really well with sweet potatoes/yams.

    I don't know where to find this...

    I have an adobo powder though. Can I find this can of chilles at a regular grocery store?

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    They're in the Mexican food section of your grocery store. They're not hard to find.

    I don't know about subbing. They have a pretty distinctive smokey flavor.

    I use this brand

    You can buy them, Moomies, I buy them all the time. That recipe does sound good. Wish I'd read this thread before I made my sweet potato casserole the other day.
