Chipotle Maple Yams

photo (10)These were a successful experiment using Garnet yams and Japanese sweet potatoes, maple syrup, and a delightfully addictive chipotle-and-pumpkin-seed based hot sauce from Rancho Gordo, called Felicidad Chipotle Salsa. This salsa has quite a bit of pep to it, and may be a little intense for some. Rancho Gordo also makes a mild sauce that would work well in this recipe.

Oven 450 degrees F

Serves 8 generously

4 garnet yams, peeled and cut into 1 inch segments

4 Japanese sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch segments

1/2 tsp salt

3 T Felicidad Salsa

3 T dark amber Maple Syrup

2 T pumpkin seed oil

Place all ingredients in a baking dish. Roast, uncovered, stirring a couple of times during the cooking process. Remove from oven when tender. Stir, then let rest 5 minutes before serving. Get something cool to drink, and enjoy!
