- 4-5 large sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 2 inch chunks
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter divided
- 1-2 chipotle peppers in adobo finely chopped
- 3 teaspoons adobo sauce
- Kosher salt and pepper to taste
Place the chopped sweet potatoes in a large pot of water. Place over medium high heat and boil until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain the water from the pot, leaving the potatoes in the pot.
Add 3 tablespoons of the butter, chipotle pepper and adobo sauce to the sweet potatoes. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Add extra adobo sauce or chipotle peppers once seasoned depending on how hot you'd like the sweet potatoes. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter.
