SANTA CRUZ CHIPOTLE MASHED SWEET POTATOES

 

2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
½ cup half and half
3 tbs butter, room temperature
Juice of one lime
¼ cup brown sugar
1 cinnamon stick
Salt to taste
½ cup Santa Cruz Chipotle Paste

Place sweet potatoes in a pot and cover completely with cold water.  Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes or until they are fork tender.  Drain the water and return to the pan.  Set the pot back on medium-low heat, stirring to evaporate any remaining water.  Remove from heat and blend in butter, half and half and lime juice and mash to desired consistency.  Cook for 2 minutes to heat thoroughly.  Stir in brown sugar, salt and ½ tsp. freshly grated cinnamon.  Add Santa Cruz Chipotle Paste on spoon at a time, mix and taste, a little less for mild flavor, more for spicier potatoes.  Sprinkle top with ¼ tsp. cinnamon and serve.
