Sweet Potato Dip

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

Serves: 18

A little bit of sweetness and a whole lot of great taste...that's what you'll get from this flavorful dip that's ready to serve in just 30 minutes!

ingredients

2 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 1/4 pounds)
2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
1 tbsp. butter, melted
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
dash ground black pepper
4 tbsp. chopped pecans, toasted
2 pkg. (6 ounces each) Pepperidge Farm® Baked Naturals® Cracker Chips (any variety)

directions

Place the potatoes into a 3-quart saucepan and add water to cover.  Heat over medium-high heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.  Drain the potatoes well in a colander.  Peel the potatoes.  Return the potatoes to the saucepan.  Mash the potatoes.


Stir the potatoes, syrup, butter, lemon juice, ginger, nutmeg, black pepper and 3 tablespoons pecans in a medium bowl.  Sprinkle with the remaining pecans.  Serve with the cracker chips for dipping.


For a sweet, tart twist, stir in 1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries.


For a savory twist, omit the ginger and nutmeg.  Stir in 1/2 teaspoon each ground cumin and garlic powder and 2 green onions, sliced (about 1/4 cup).
