Chipotle chile peppers come packed in adobo sauce and are available in seven-ounce cans. Because we use such a small amount in this recipe, you can freeze what's left over in a heavy-duty freezer bag for another use.
1 pound coarsely chopped peeled sweet potato
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons fat-free milk
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 teaspoons adobo sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 drained canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce, minced
How to Make It
Place potato in a saucepan, and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until tender; drain. Return potatoes to pan. Add remaining ingredients; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth.
Am I the only person who feels that the wording for the chipotle ingredient could be confusing? I was in a hurry when I made this recipe and I quickly read it as ' 1/2 can drained and minced'. I may try this recipe again but not anytime soon.
Great combination of flavors, but I used ONE TEASPOON of maple syrup. This is not a pie! I also used unsweetened vanilla almond milk (40 calories per cup--great stuff!) in place of regular and skipped the butter while doubling the chipotle.
