    I can’t get over how creamy and smooth these are!! And I imagine that chipotle kick is the perfect counterpart to the sweet…

    You had me at honey chipotle…these look fantastic Liz! Especially that pad of butter slowly melting into the potatoes, OMG YES. I’m surprised I haven’t turned orange with how many sweet potatoes I consume.
