Chipotle Orange Sweet Potatoes
(makes 8 servings)


  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 small can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (you will be using 2 tablespoons of the adobo sauce in the recipe)
  • Juice of 1 orange


  1. Heat oven to 375º F.
  2. Bake sweet potatoes directly on oven racks for 1 hour, or until tender when pierced with a fork.
  3. Remove potatoes from oven, slice in quarters. Carefully slide the potato skins off and discard. (Careful -- the potatoes are very hot!) Place potatoes in a large bowl and mash.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons of adobo sauce to the potatoes and blend thoroughly. (If your tongue can take it and you want a more fiery and spicier dish, mix some chopped chipotle peppers into the potatoes.)
  5. Add the orange juice and salt. Mix until blended.
