A terrific blend of spices, that is a nice change from candied yams.

With just 2 of us, I cut the recipe in half & then reduced the amount of chili powder to 2 teaspoons, but otherwise followed the recipe, & the yams were absolutely delicious! This great new way to prepare yams is a definite keeper! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]
