Chipotle Sweet Potato Latkes (Pancakes) 1


When I think of Hanukkah one of the first things that comes to mind, besides presents, are latkes.
I make them every year for Hanukkah (and other holidays too).  This year I came up with a different
version that I am sure will become part of my holiday tradition.  The smoky favor of the chipotle
powder works perfectly with the sweet potato.  Try my new creation and I hope it becomes
part of your Hanukkah or any holiday celebration as well.

I like to make mine ahead of time and freeze on a foiled baking sheet.

You can then re-heat at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes. This makes things less messy for
entertaining and if you can ever make something ahead of time when serving guests do so!
