Perfect Thanksgiving Potato and sweet potato puree with vegan chipotle queso

This potato and sweet potato puree with vegan chipotle queso is completely different from the classic version. Still delicious though.

At this time of year, at Christmas and Thanksgiving, mashed potatoes are a must on our table. Well, I’ll tell you that in my house it is very common throughout the year. The truth is that we love them and we eat potatoes and sweet potatoes pretty often. This puree is one of our favorites, and the best part of this potato and sweet potato puree is that I can use the leftovers to make tacos or “tostadas“.

I made this recipe for Thanksgiving one year and it was delicious, so it’s been in our table since then. It’s a classic and super simple recipe of potato and sweet potato puree but with a twist. The potatoes get cooked in salty water. In the end, then mashed with crushed black pepper, salt, and butter (I use vegan butter). 

This vegan chipotle queso is the best, and it’s super easy to make, you only need three ingredients (four if you count salt as one). You can use it to make nachos, or roasted broccoli or anything else that comes to mind. Just drizzle it on top of anything for an amazing kick of flavor and creaminess.
