Baked Sweet Potato and Three Cheese Dip Ingredients

Sweet Potato Three Cheese Dip Ingredients

  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes
  • 4 oz cream cheese (softened)
  • ½ cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup goat cheese (crumbled)
  • ½ cup candied pecans (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

Sweet Potato Three Cheese Dip Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375° F.

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Peel the sweet potatoes if you would like. I leave the skin on for extra nutritional value! Cut the sweet potatoes into large cubes.

Add the sweet potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Boil for 20 minutes, or until fork tender.

Drain the sweet potatoes from the water and mash. Measure out 2 cups of mashed sweet potatoes (this should be almost exact to the 2 lbs of sweet potatoes you boiled.)

Add the 2 cups of mashed sweet potatoes, cream cheese, ricotta cheese, honey, chili powder, cinnamon and kosher salt to a large mixing bowl.

Serve with a sliced toasted baguette or crackers. I found Rosemary Raisin Crackers at Trader Joe’s that perfectly complimented the fall flavored dip!
