"Served this for Thanksgiving dinner today and it was a big hit, a nice change from the typical holiday sweet potato dishes. The chipotles and cayenne add flavor but no real heat, so don't be afraid of this recipe if you aren't a fan of spice, but for my tastes I think I will add a couple more chipotles next time. Also, there was waaaay too much topping, even for a 9x12 pan; I ended up using only about half of it, so next time I would cut back on the topping ingredients. This one goes into my permanent Thanksgiving recipe collection."
