I found this recipe ages ago and saved it because it just looked so good. And it is - so good. I've made it a couple times so far, and this recipe is definitely a keeper. I thought it was about time I post the recipe.
Of course I changed things a bit, but I did keep the spices the same. The combination of flavors is really good - a bit spicy, a bit sweet. I added the spinach because I had some that needed used, and I'm a bit obsessed with throwing spinach into everything these days.
The original recipe called for 2 T butter and 1/2 cup milk when mashing the sweet potatoes, but my sweet potatoes were so soft and mashed up so nicely they didn't really need anything. I did add the butter before I realized that, but I completely skipped the milk. Just add butter and milk as needed to get the consistency you want.
Garnish with additional cilantro and serve with a green salad and cornbread for a delicious dinner.
