1. Chipotle Smashed Sweet Potatoes

Why does sweet potato casserole get to sit next to the great golden turkey on everyone’s Thanksgiving table? It’s much too sweet and is packed full of calories (it’s totally a dessert). This chipotle sweet potato dish, on the other hand, definitely belongs there—it’s so good and only 152 calories a serving!
