Latkes, also known as potato pancakes, are traditionally served during Hanukkah. This version made with sweet potatoes and jalapeños uses all the rest of the same ingredients – flour, eggs and seasonings. Lightly fried in vegetable oil, these colorful pancakes are topped with sour cream and avocado mashed together. These can be made gluten-free by substituting all-purpose flour with rice flour.

Ingredients

  • 2 ea. medium Avocados From Mexico, diced
  • 4 T. light sour cream
  • 1 T. fresh lime juice
  • 1 lb. sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated (or spiralized)
  • 2 ea. scallions, finely chopped
  • 2 ea. jalapeño peppers, seeded, diced
  • 2 ea. large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 t. kosher salt
  • 1/4 t. black pepper
  • 1/4 c. vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. Combine avocado, sour cream, and lime juice in a medium bowl and gently mash together. Cover and place in fridge until ready to serve.
  2. Stir together sweet potatoes, scallions, jalapeños, eggs, flour, salt, and pepper.
  3. Heat oil in a deep nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches of 4, per latke, spoon 3 heaping spoonfuls of sweet potato mixture into oil and flatten slightly into pancake 1/2” thick.
  4. Reduce heat to medium and cook until golden, about 1–1/2 minutes on each side. Transfer latkes with spatula to paper towels to drain. Serve with avocado mash.
