4-5 yams, peeled & cut into wedges (I used a French fry maker, to cut mine)
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. pepper
½ Tbsp. kosher salt
Maple Chipotle Sauce
1/2 C Mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 Tbsp. Chipotle peppers in adobe sauce, minced
Put yams in a bowl and drizzle oil, and salt & pepper over. Mix well. Spray 1 or 2 jellyroll pans with Pam and lay yams in a single layer. Give them room, so use two pans if necessary. Bake in a 450 preheated oven for 45 minutes, until tender. Mix all sauce ingredients together. If you want a sweeter or spicier sauce increase the syrup & chipotle peppers. I use 2 Tbsps. of the peppers.
I love yam fries pretty plain, but you can jazz them up with cilantro, lime, sugar, homey, cheese, whatever sounds good to you.
