Five Ingredient Dip

I just saw this recipe fixed on a local tv show. It caught my attention because it used sweet potatoes.


Then I discovered what a chipotle pepper is.

Do you know?*


1 medium sweet potato
1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
2 T fresh squeezed lime juice
1 T salsa
1/4 c (2 oz) shredded Pepper Jack or Reduced Fat Pepper Jack cheese 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake sweet potato at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until tender. Let cool slightly and peel.
Place baked sweet potato in small food processor or blender; add remaining ingredients. Pulse until well combined.
Serve warm with fresh veggies, crackers or tortilla chips.

I'm going to buy these ingredients and let you know how it turns out. I don't have a food processor, so mine will be VERY chunky.

* It's a smoked jalapeno pepper.
