Sweet Potato How to Bake – Twice Baked Honey Orange Chipotle Sweet Potatoes
These baked sweet potatoes are a great addition to any meal. They are also elegant enough to serve as a side on festive occasions. Here is what you are going to need for this:
6 sweet potatoes – thoroughly scrubbed
2 TBS unsalted butter
1 TBS honey
2 TBS freshly squeezed orange juice
1 tsp. orange zest
¼ tsp. chipotle powder or more to taste
¼ tsp. cinnamon powder
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place the sweet potatoes on a pan and bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and allow cooling – until cool enough to handle.
Melt the butter and honey together.
Carefully cut each baked potato in half. Scoop out the flesh – being careful not to tear the skins – into a bowl. Add the orange juice, orange zest, chipotle, cinnamon and melted butter and honey. Mix well.
Refill the potato skins with the mashed potatoes. Place them back in the oven – at 375 degrees – for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and serve. Enjoy!
