Chile-Spiced Mashed Sweet Potatoes
- 4 large sweet potatoes (3 1/2 pounds total)
- 2 Teaspoons grated orange zest
- 1/2 Cup orange juice
- 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
- 2 Teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 Teaspoon chili powder
- 1/4 Teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Bake the sweet potatoes until they are soft, about 1 hour, 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
In a small bowl, whisk together the orange zest, orange juice, brown sugar, cinnamon, chili powder, and salt. Scoop the sweet potato flesh into a large bowl. Pour in the orange juice mixture and mash well.
