    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]

      I found real yams from Louisiana, and used them for this recipe. I enjoyed the chili-cinnamon butter, but I think I'd reduce the amount of the cinnamon and chili powder next time. Maybe my yam wasn't large enough, but the flavors overwhelmed the potato. I wanted a large amount of butter mix for my photo, but in retrospect, I should have reduced it. In the correct proportions, I think this would be delicious!!

      I made these for a Thanksgiving dinner with our neighbors. My husband and I really liked it a lot, although he said maybe a touch of brown sugar in the butter might make it even better. I think our neighbors preferred the candied yams that they made! I guess it's all a matter of taste, but I'll definitely be making these again. It's a fun way to spice up a yam!
