  • 4 pounds baking potatoes

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 1/4 cups warm buttermilk

  • 1/2 cup warm milk

  • 1/4 cup melted butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup mashed baked sweet potatoes

  1. Peel baking potatoes; cut into 2-inch pieces. Bring potatoes, 2 tsp. salt, and water to cover to a boil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat; boil 20 minutes or until tender. Drain. Return potatoes to Dutch oven, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes or until potatoes are dry.

  3. Stir in sweet potatoes and chopped chipotle peppers, and spoon the mixture into a lightly greased 2 1/2-qt. baking dish or 8 (10-oz.) ramekins. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes.
