Made this last night thinking it was the iffy-est part of the meal & it ended up being the best! We all really enjoyed the flavor. I followed the recipe except used one full teaspoon of adobo sauce & none of the peppers. This was only because the main dish had peppers and adobo sauce & I didn't want this to be hot. It wasn't. Just a nice rich flavor.

This is quite delicious, but I don't know why you'd add sugar. It's plenty sweet from the potatoes themselves. I used Tabsco brand Chipotle hot sauce for convenience. Served with the wonderful Jamaican-spiced chicken thighs and steamed yellow squash with red bell peppers.

This was very tasty, I cut down on the chipotle, and was glad I did. Making it again today to take to pot-luck.

I made this without the lime and chipotle chile in adobo sauce, b/c I just wanted plain mash ed sweet potatoes; it was a delicious complimant to my Potato-Crusted Mahi Mahi and Sauteed Green Beans With Bacon.

Easy and delicious! Just a little tangy and a little spicy, none of the flavors overwhelmed. I baked the sweet potatoes instead of microwaving them for more even cooking; it took about 45 minutes at 425 degrees for four medium ones.
