2ouncesGreek yogurt cream cheesesoftened to room temperature (or substitute with reduced fat cream cheese)
3 tablespoonswhole cranberry sauce or jam(optional)
Preheat oven to 375℉. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Scrub sweet potatoes and pierce on all sides with a fork. Place them onto the prepared pan and roast for 1 - 1 ½ hours until soft and tender. Turn the potatoes over half way through cooking to ensure even roasting.
Remove potatoes from oven and let cool slightly for about 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350℉.
Cut the potatoes in half and scoop the flesh into a large mixing bowl. Add the salt, pepper, minced chipotle + sauce, butter, cream cheese, and maple syrup. Use a hand mixer to whip all ingredients together for about 2 minutes or until well incorporated, scraping down the sides of bowl as needed. If using, fold the cranberry sauce or jam into the potatoes to create a swirled effect.
Spoon the potato mixture into a greased baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve hot.
Potatoes can be made up to 1 day ahead and reheated in a greased baking dish at 350℉ for 45 minutes - 1 hour until heated through.
