Chipotle Smashed Sweet Potatoes

Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  On most dinner tables you will find sweet potatoes.  Yes, many folks cover them with marshmallows and brown sugar.  If that is your tradition, get all over it.  We wanted to find a healthy alternative to the typical sweet potato dish.  Chipotle Smashed Sweet Potatoes give a nice blend of savory with a kick.  This will become a regular side dish in our home.  Enjoy! -Amanda
