Chipotle Sweet Potato Cakes

IMG_2261 - Version 2

These were an INSTANT hit at my house. I was just lucky to eat these four the way Hubs was chowing down! Do I detect a new favorite recipe? I think yes.

And how could it not be? Slightly sweet from the potatoes, a nice kick of spice from the chipotle chiles, rounded out with onion & garlic and you’ve got a keeper on your hands!

And I must say these could make a fabulous appetizer for upcoming holiday parties.

In other news… I have officially declared next week to be PUMPKIN WEEK! If you’re not already knee-deep in recipes containing fall’s favorite orange squash, well, you should be! And I’m here to help you with three pumpkin recipes! Get excited. :)

Chipotle Sweet Potato Cakes; Recipe or Not

Makes roughly 10 patties

1 sweet potato, peeled & shredded (A cheese grater works perfectly for shredding.)

1/2 medium onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

3-4 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, finely diced

pinch of salt & pepper

1/2 c. bread crumbs

2 eggs

The Prep: Combine all of the ingredients together, mixing really well. Heat a few tablespoon of canola oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Form patties into about 2 inch circles and begin frying in the heated oil. Takes 3-4 minutes per side, until crispy & brown on the outside.
