Sweet Potato Chipotle Gratin
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons pureed chipotle peppers
3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine the heavy cream and the chipotle puree. Place a fourth of the sweet potato slices in the prepared baking dish. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then pour a fourth of the cream mixture over the sweet potato slices. Repeat the layers with the remaining sweet potatoes and cream mixture, forming four layers. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until potatoes are browned and cream has been absorbed. Allow to sit for 10 minutes after removing from oven before serving.
With the richness of the cream and the heat of the chipotles, this sweet potato side dish is one that is sure to be a favorite.
