  • 4 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and halved
  • 5 large oranges, preferably navel
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon chopped, seeded canned chipotle pepper

  1. 1. Place sweet potatoes in a large pan, cover with cold water and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 45 minutes. Drain.
  2. 2. While potatoes are cooking, cut 4 oranges in half and carefully remove pulp and juice. Place orange halves in a large muffin pan to stand them up, or arrange in a large baking dish; set aside.
