About this recipe

Mashed potatoes are a popular dish during Thanksgiving and Christmas, but in my household, we enjoy it all year round. We love it so much that I even turn the leftovers into delicious taquitos or tostadas.

How to make sweet potato and potato mash?

  • It’s a super simple mash of potato and sweet potato.
  • The potatoes and sweet potatoes are cut into pieces and boiled in a pot with salted water over medium heat. When they’re soft, drain them, but don’t throw away the water; you can use it to make the mash smoother.
  • In the end, I finish it with freshly ground black pepper, salt, and butter (I use vegan butter). If you can’t find vegan butter, you can finish it with olive oil.
  • Lastly, I drizzle it with chipotle vegan cheese.
  • And if you want a little more flavor, sprinkle some chopped cilantro on top. This vegan sweet potato mash also goes well with chopped parsley or chives on top.

How to make Chipotle vegan queso?

  • 1 cup of raw, unsalted cashews

You can pair it with any dish, not just this potato and sweet potato mash.

Tips for the best sweet potato- potato mash

  • You can make this potato mash with vegan cheese with or without sweet potato. Either way, it tastes super delicious.
  • In Mexico, we call it “camote,” but I know that in other parts of Latin America, it’s called “batata.”
  • If you have leftovers, you can transform them into soup or use them as a base for some tostadas.
  • Sometimes, people ask me, “Which is healthier, sweet potato or potato?” Honestly, I think each has its own nutritional benefits. Both have vitamins and minerals, but I do believe the definite winner is sweet potato.
  • This mashed potato tastes better when it’s freshly made; it can be stored perfectly in the fridge, but it doesn’t freeze well.
  • The vegan chipotle cheese lasts a long time in the fridge and goes great with everything. With chips, with tacos, with EVERYTHING.
