Let’s start with a bold statement: you need this Mexican Sweet Potato Gratin with Chicken in your life. And when I say life, I mean right now. I know the recipe box says it serves 6 people but the baking dish was empty just hours after it came out of the oven. And you know by now that it’s just the two of us, right? It could be that Solal eats like a horse (and I would be a foal) or this gratin was particularly good and we had a lot of it. Or maybe both. Snack + dinner? You got it! That being said, if you are perfectly normal people – and I’m sure you are- this gratin does make six servings. With a salad or some greens on the side, that is.
Now, let’s be serious for a minute and talk toppings. You can be boring and just add a few cilantro leaves and scallions. But if you’re looking for the complete omg-this-mexican-sweet-potato-casserole-is-amazing-I-want-to-eat-it-for-the-rest-of-my-life experience, then you’ve got to go for the guacamole topping. It will take this dish from the ‘umm it’s good!’ stage to the ‘WOW IT’S SO DELICIOUS’ one. I know it’s not pictured in the photos but trust on this one, mmkay? And please, please, please, do your tummy a favor: don’t buy your guacamole, it’s so easy to make at home! The recipe? mashed avocado, chopped red onion, salt and bam you’re done!
