      Wow!!! This is an unexpected flavor combination and OH-so-delicious! I did as a previous review suggested and pureed the chipotles in the adobo sauce just to make prep easier. I used 1/2 teaspoon of the puree and it was just enough to give it a little bit of heat but not make it spicy. I will definitely make this over and over again.

      Very good. I thought quadrupling the chipotle and whipping until light and fluffy sent it to a sterling 5*.

      Totally off the wall in taste sensation and full of goodness as well as a good packing a nutritional punch! I followed this recipe except for 2 small changes that wouldn't really change the elements of this dish. First off, I baked the sweet potato (had a slight accident and was easier for me instead of standing) and I only had lemon instead of lime. Now I know lime would of been the preferred addition, but since I won't be out of the house for a bit, I had to use what I had on hand. Either way, Dennis and my boys ate this so fast I had to quick take a picture and they shoveled the potato down. We all love chipotle and found this to go perfectly with the humble little sweet potato. Thank you, Maito! Made for *Spring Spectacular* April 2008
