Buffalo Sweet Potato & Chicken Casserole (Recipe Revisit)

I am crazy busy this week and need to stick to basics I can whip up quickly. I love this dish because it's big on flavor but low maintenance to make.

While I stuck closely to Paleo Leap's recipe the first time I shared this one, tonight I used some chipotle Just Mayo (that I received to sample from Hampton Creek) in lieu of the hot sauce. It yielded a really creamy and flavorful sauce that I actually preferred to the original version.

The Hampton Creek product isn't truly paleo, but does use non-GMO expeller pressed canola oil. It has a delicious flavor and the contact I've had with the company has been 110% positive. Definitely worth checking out if you're looking for a packaged mayo to use when you're short on time but want to keep things clean.
