  • Begin by roasting the sweet potato and calabaza at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-40 minutes or until for tender.
  • Once fork tender, allow to rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • Begin to peel the sweet potatoes and add them whole into a stand mixer or use a bowl with a potato masher and begin to mash the sweet potatoes.
  • Once the sweet potato is whipped begin to peel the skin of the calabaza with a paring knife and scrape the flesh of the calabaza removing any seeds that reside in the center of the squash.
