Test Kitchen Tip

As with any dish containing jalapeño, if you want these potatoes to have a spicy kick, don’t remove the ribs and seeds.


Cook sweet potatoes in a large pot of boiling salted water until fork-tender, 1215 minutes.

Drain potatoes; return to pot and cook over low heat, stirring to remove excess moisture, 2 minutes.

Add sour cream, butter, garlic, jalapeño, zest, and lime juice to pot, then mash potatoes to desired consistency; season with salt.


Dry out the sweet potatoes after boiling so they can better absorb the sour cream and butter.
