Chipotle Mashed Sweet Potatoes – Only 3 Ingredients!

This post may contain affiliate links, please see my disclosure here. Thank you for your support!

Hey guys, how is your week going?  It is starting to get warm over here and I am trying to deny that summer has already arrived in the southwest.  Hopefully there are lots of pools in my future.

A couple of weeks ago I found myself with a surplus of sweet potatoes, and ended up whipping up this side dish on the fly.  It turned out so well, I knew I had to share it with you guys.   We enjoyed this dish along side Cajun spiced turkey and roasted veggies.  It makes a great side and also reheats well.

This recipe is an easy, hearty vegan dish that only has three ingredients (not including salt and pepper).  It is tasty enough to please a crowd, and may even come together with items you already have on hand!

Chipotle Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Serves 4


  • 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, finely diced
  • 1/4-1/3 cup vegetable broth

Directions:  Boil the diced sweet potatoes in salted water until fork tender.  Once soft, drain and return to pan or place in a bowl.  Add diced chipotle peppers and vegetable broth, starting with 1/4 cup.   Mash and mix until well blended and desired consistency is reached, adding additional broth a tablespoon or so at a time, as needed.  You can also use a mixer for smoother potatoes.  Salt and pepper to taste.

This recipe can be easily customized to suit your tastes, I love it as a three ingredient recipe, but you could also a little garlic or additional spice.  If you prefer creamier potatoes (and are okay with dairy), try mixing in a little milk, cream or butter as well.

Let me know if you give it a try.

Do you have any favorite sweet potatoes recipes?  I usually roll with roasted or sauteed, but like to branch out from time to time.  One of my favorite nontraditional sweet potato options is this sweet potato breakfast bowl, which is also a great way to use up extra potatoes.

  2. Oh yum! I love those chipolte peppers! They are such a good ingredient- so much flavor! This is my kind of recipe.

  3. Love a recipe that is simple and delicious. Always have these three ingredients on hand. Will be making this sometime this week.

  4. I’ve been incorporating sweet potatoes in our dinner routes as a way to replace regular potatoes. This is a great recipe idea for me since I sometimes crave mashed potatoes!

  5. I actually love chipotles in adobo and find that I don’t come across too many recipes with it! I’m definitely going to make this considering I have 10 sweet potatoes on hand!

  6. Sweet and spicy – I love that combination! I’m super plain and love sweet potatoes with butter. I also like toasting thin slices of sweet potatoes in the oven and topping with cream cheese!

  7. Oh! A nice spicy take on sweet potatoes! What a great idea! We have an adobo sauce Wegmans sells and I think that will be the perfect substitute with this!

    1. Thanks Patrick! I love this one because it is frequently ingredients we have on hand, so I can have it ready in a snap.
