  • Bring a pot of salted water large enough to easily hold the cubed sweet potatoes to a boil. Add the potatoes and boil for about 10 to 15 minutes until tender.
  • Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot you cooked them in. Place the potatoes back on the heat (medium) for a couple of minutes to remove some of the excess starch and moisture.
    Be sure to stir the potatoes while this is happening so they don't burn.
  • Using your favorite mashing technique, mash the potatoes to desired consistency.
  • Add the butter and minced chile, taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper.
