4 pounds sweet potatoes (about 4 large)
1 tablespoon chopped canned chipotle chilies (about 1 1/2 chilies) in adobo sauce, plus 2 Tbsp. sauce
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 teaspoon salt


1. Preheat oven to 450ºF. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Prick potatoes all over with a fork and bake until very soft, 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes. Let cool. Lower oven temperature to 350ºF.

2. Cut potatoes in half crosswise and scoop out flesh. In a food processor, puree potato flesh with chilies, sauce, butter and salt. Spread into a greased 2-quart baking dish.

3. Bake uncovered until hot, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve.
