Sweet Potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes at Thanksgiving. To be totally honest, I’ve always been a little (READ: A LOT) scared of the sweet potatoes and marshmallow side dish, I just can’t wrap my head around it. I think marshmallows belong on s’mores! And if you’re of the same mindset as me – you should probably make this S’more Pudding Pie for the Thanksgiving dessert table!

So as another sweet potato option, I started to make these mashed sweet potatoes that get tossed with a bit of chipotle peppers in adobo to give it a nice smoky taste. It’s pretty addictive. Their buttery texture makes these chipotle mashed sweet potatoes an excellent addition to any Thanksgiving table!

  1. Adobo sauce makes everything better! I’ve never thought it could be combined with sweet potatoes, but that is ingenious! The picture is definitely making my mouth water 🙂

  2. I made this a couple of nights ago, only I roasted my potatoes. So good. Eating leftovers now and I thought to squeeze a little lime juice over. Yum. Then I thought maybe just a sprinkling of brown sugar mixed in. Freakin’ good! Thanks! I’ll be repeating this often.

  4. Really want to make this. Love both sweet pots and chipolte.. It occurs to me that some markets have large potatoes and others have really large potatoes. Can you tell me the total weight of the sweet potatoes?

  5. 5 stars
