Forget common sweeteners like maple syrup or brown sugar; “I love sweet potatoes cooked in Coke with chipotle mixed in,” katecm confesses, noting that it’s an “embarrassingly easy” dish. First, katecm seasons diced sweet potatoes with salt and pepper and browns them. Then she mixes chipotles in adobo sauce with Coke and pours it over the potatoes, stirs, and covers the pot. “They don’t take long to cook that way, so when they are almost soft, uncover and finish so that the soda cooks away into a glaze,” says katecm. “You can quickly broil if you want a bit of crust, but be SUPER careful because the sweet glaze will burn easily.”
