Sweet Chili Yams

Serves 4.


  • 2 medium yams (about 1 lb), scrubbed
  • 1 Tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 c onion, chopped
  • 1 c bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 chili pepper, minced (optional)
  • 1/2 c canned pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1/4 c Thai sweet chili sauce


  1. Place whole yams in a pot and cover with water. Bring to boiling over high heat, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes, or until just fork tender. Cool, peel, and cut into 1/4 inch slices.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and butter an 8 x 8 x 2 inch baking dish.
  3. In a large skillet on medium, heat the oil and butter. Add onions and bell peppers. Saute 4 minutes. Add garlic and chili peppers and saute another minute.
  4. Stir in the pineapple and sweet chili sauce. Remove from flame and pour half of the skillet mixture in the prepared baking dish to form an even layer.
  5. Arrange yam slices evenly on top. Cover with remaining skillet mixture and spread evenly. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until heated through. Serve hot.
