Chipotle Honey Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Chipotle Honey Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Guess what kind of food I have for you today?

Sweet potatooooooes!

Sometimes I’m so predictable.

BUT not just any sweet potatoes. Creamy mashed sweet potatoes with a kick of chipotle and a drizzle of honey. If you only eat sweet potatoes once in your life, make sure they’re these ones.

Side note, does anyone know how to take a good picture of mashed potatoes? If I could have a guest photographer for all future mashed potato posts… that would be great.

Anyway, I’m kind of obsessed with the combination of chipotle/honey/sweet potato that I first came across in these tacos (my favorite!) from Naturally Ella. It’s good in everything! Well, that might be an exaggeration. But if I’m ever wondering what to do with some leftover sweet potatoes, that flavor combination always comes to mind.

These potatoes would be great with a pork chop and a side of green veggies… or just scooped straight out of the serving bowl (not that I would know anything about that!). I was also thinking of using them as a bed for a cauliflower steak with some sort of veggie gravy, which is probably what I’ll do next time. So many possibilities!

In other news, guess what I have for you tomorrow? Just a little sneak peak:

Coffee & Quinoa

And there won’t be any sweet potatoes in them, I promise.

Although, truth be told, I might choose these sweet potatoes over cupcakes if I had to make the choice… yep, there’s a very good chance that I would. Luckily no one in their right mind would make you choose between those two things. That would just be cruel! I’ll take sweet potatoes AND cupcakes, please.

    Oh. Yum! I used to buy chilis in adobo all the time and then kind of forgot about that as an ingredient until right now. Never thought to put them in sweet potatoes though! Looks delic.

    As far of pictures of mashed potatoes go, I always thought it would be fun to pretend they were ice cream… and then be like MUAHAHA these are potatoes!

    I loved mashed sweet potatoes. And I love all the sweet potatoes going on around here! This sounds amazing. It’s cold and dreary here and I am in desperate need of some comfort food like this :)

    Hahaha you and your sweet potatoes! Might as well make as much as you can with ‘em while they’re still in season! Plus they help your complexion :)

    Chipotle and sweet potato sounds like a PERFECT flavor combo!

    I want to stick my face in your bowl of mashed potatoes. I’m so tempted by the chilies in adobo sauce with the honey and the butter…it all sounds so great together!! Your photos are great girly, they’re making my mouth water and mashed tater photos are not easy! :)
