For a savory and sweet side, try this Honey Chipotle Sweet Potato Mash. We love the smokiness from the chipotle in the recipe. To sweeten things up, we add some honey to mix in that really compliments the sweet potatoes to bring you some real South West flavor.

This hearty dish can be used as a side or as a bed of mashed potato goodness for your protein of choice. We love to top these potatoes with a black bean burger, or even alongside of pulled pork.


  • 3 pounds of sweet potatoes

  • 5 cloves of garlic

  • 1/4 cup salted butter (1/2 stick)

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chipotle pepper powder

  • 1 tablespoon honey


Peel the potatoes. Then cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Place them into a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked soft enough to pierce with a fork. Strain and let cool.

Finely chop garlic cloves. Then melt butter in a cast iron skillet on Medium-Low. Once fully melted, add garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Then add chipotle powder and cook through for another 2 minutes.

Place potatoes in a mixer with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium with butter sauce until smooth. (If a mixer is not available, mash in a large bowl with a fork.)

Mix in honey, and add more to taste. Serve immediately or place in the refrigerator covered. To reheat, place in the oven for 15 minutes at 400* F.
