Mashed Spicy Sweet Potatoes

The original recipe has one ripe mashed banana in it, however since my husband has an unusual fear of bananas, I ommited it from the recipe. It still tasted great!

INGREDIENTS (4 servings)

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 1 serrano pepper, seeded and finely diced
  • The juice of one orange
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, unsalted
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper
Add the potatoes to a large pot of lightly salted water and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. When done, drain the potatoes and put them back in the same pot.

To the sweet potatoes add the diced serrano pepper, the juice of one orange, honey and one tablespoon butter. Mash with a potato masher. Season with salt and pepper and serve while still warm.
