  • Active Time 20m
  • Total Time 1h 15m

12 servings, 1/2 cup each

Chili powder, cumin and ginger combined with a touch of maple syrup create a spicy-sweet flavor addition to a traditional Thanksgiving player.

ingredients

  • 4 pounds sweet potatoes (4 to 5 large)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds, toasted and ground (see Ingredient Note)
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Pierce each sweet potato in several places with a fork. Place directly on the oven rack and roast until soft, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Transfer to a cutting board; let stand until cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes. Slip off the skins and cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch slices; transfer to a large bowl. Add butter. Smash the sweet potatoes with a potato masher or fork until fluffy but some lumps remain. Add maple syrup, chili powder, ground cumin, ginger, salt and pepper; stir to combine.

Ingredient Note:

Cumin seeds - Toast seeds in a small skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. Grind in a spice mill or blender into a fine powder.
