Chipotle Sweet Potatoes au Gratin Recipe

These Chipotle Sweet Potatoes au Gratin are like a mariachi band crashed a Sartre book club. Just when everybody was aloofly warding off l’appel du vide with some fancy af potatoes, the brass and accordion hit, and out came the Modelos and dancing. What we’re trying to say is this is a French-Mexican fusion dish. ¡Órale!
