about this mashed sweet potatoes recipe

Well, now that I think about it, my family loves mashed potatoes, and we often eat them. At Christmas and Thanksgiving, mashed potatoes are a must at our table. This is not your typical sweet potato casserole with maple syrup, cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg, dairy, etc.

This vegan potato and sweet potato mash recipe is a savory and a bit spicy, and once you taste it, you’ll have it over and over again.

I love making this mash. It is so flavorful, and the leftovers easily transform into taquitos or other delicious recipes.

This is a classic and simple recipe of potato and sweet potato mash but with a fun spicy Latin twist.

  • In a large pot over high heat, cook the potatoes and sweet potatoes in salty water until tender. Ok, but first, you wash, peel and cut the vegetables before adding them to the pot.
  • When soft and offer no resistance when pinched with a fork, mash them until they have the consistency you like. I like mine with tons of texture.
  • Finish with crushed black pepper, more salt, butter (I use vegan butter) or vegan sour cream. If you want them to be creamier but with less fat, you could use olive oil or the water where the potatoes are cooked.

  • Garlic powder.
  • Chipotle peppers in adobo. You can buy paste of the whole chile chipotles in adobo sauce; either will work.

  • Just drizzle it on top of anything for an amazing kick of flavor and creaminess.
  • Before serving these mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes, drizzle the vegan chipotle queso on top and finish with chopped cilantro.

How to store the mashed sweet potatoes?

Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for over three days. This recipe does not freeze well. Same with the vegan chipotle queso, prepare in advance and store in the refrigerator in a tightly closed jar.

To reheat over medium-low heat over the stove. If you prefer to use the oven, put the sweet potato and potato mash in an oven-safe baking dish (affiliate link) and cover with foil. Set the oven to medium temperature until entirely heated. In both cases, you will have to check the seasoning and adjust if necessary.
