- 4 cups heavy cream
- 1 canned chipotle in adobo pepper
- 6 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, sliced thin
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a blender, purÃ©e the cream and chipotle until smooth.
In a 10×10-inch casserole, arrange a fourth of the sweet potatoes, season to taste with salt and pepper, and pour a fourth of the cream over all. Repeat with the remaining potatoes and cream, forming 4 layers. (May be prepared up to this point 30 minutes ahead; covered and refrigerated.)
Bake for 1 hour, or until the cream has been absorbed and the potatoes are browned. (May be prepared up to 1 day ahead; covered and refrigerated.)
To serve, reheat in a 350-degree oven for 12 minutes.
Makes 8 to 10 servings.
