Here’s another way to cook the ‘almighty sweet potato’. I’ve talked about all its benefits in The Oven-Roasted Sweet Potatoes Wedges recipe a few posts back. This one in quick, easy and packs some serious heat. Comes from one of my favorite culinary minds (and personalities), Alton Brown.
TOTAL TIME: 40 min
Prep: 10 min
Cook: 30 min
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 whole canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, chopped
1 teaspoon adobo sauce from can of peppers
1/2 teaspoon salt
- Put cubed potatoes into steamer basket and place steamer into a large pot of simmering water that is no closer than 2 inches from the bottom of basket. Allow to steam for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.
- Add butter to potatoes and mash with potato masher. Add peppers, sauce, and salt and continue mashing to combine.
