Mashed White Sweet Potatoes

  • 2 large white sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes*
  • 1 tablespoon salt, plus more to taste
  • ¼ cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped chives (garnish, optional)

Chipotle Honey Butter

  • 1 stick salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoon chipotle en adobo sauce


  • Bring butter to room temperature. Add butter, honey, and chipotle en adobo sauce to a bowl.
  • Whip with a hand mixer until completely combined. Set aside.
  • Bring a pot of water seasoned with 1 tablespoon of salt to a gentle boil over medium-high heat. Add sweet potato cubes to the boiling pot of water.
  • Cook for around 15 minutes, or until the sweet potato cubes pierce easily with a fork. Remove from heat and strain. Return to pot.
  • Add ¾ of the Chipotle Honey Butter and ¼ cup of whole milk to the pot. Mash, mash, mash! until you reach desired consistency. I don’t mind a few lumps, but you could also run these through a ricer if you want super smooth and creamy spuds.
  • Serve along with the remaining Chipotle Honey Butter. Sprinkle with fresh chives for a mild, onion-y pop.


*You can also use orange sweet potatoes, but the flavor of the Chipotle Honey Butter will be more pronounced with the milder white sweet potato variety.
