Sweet Potato Jalapeno Casserole
- 5 lbs sweet potatoes
- 1/4 cup butter
- 3 large fresh jalapenos, finely chopped (use less seeds if you want it less spicy)
- 8 oz. shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Bake potatoes at 400 degrees F. for one hour or until soft. Cool and remove skins. Place potatoes in large bowl, then add butter. Beat potatoes at medium speed with an electric beater until mashed. Stir in jalapenos, 1 cup cheese, salt and pepper. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 9 x 13 inch pan, then sprinkle remaining cheese over the top. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 30 minutes or until the edges are bubbly and the cheese is melted. Then put your oven on Broil and broil for 3 more minutes or until cheese is golden and crispy.
