 1 tbsp cumin
 1 tsp chipotle seasoning

1

Slice sweet potatoes into thin slices (tip, if the potatoes are really hard and tough to slice, you can bake them a little bit in order to soften them before slicing).

Melt butter in a saucepan and add half of the flour, mixing to ensure no lumps remain.

4

Slowly pour in the milk and add remaining flour whisking constantly to remove lumps.

Once the mixture is smooth (like gravy), bring to a simmer for about 10 minutes and then remove from heat.

6

Add half 2/3 of the cheese and stir until melted.

7

Add cumin, chipotle, salt and pepper to taste.

8

Pour sauce on top of the sweet potatoes and cover them all well.

9

Cover the dish with foil and bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes to an hour (until sweet potatoes are fork-tender).
