“This is a simple and filling recipe. The cool and spicy avocado topping is a pleasant contrast to the hot sweet yams.” - by SQUEAKYLYNN

"Five stars - for successful originality, if nothing else! What a weird combination, but it works well. I made these several weeks ago, and my husband was extremely skeptical. However, after trying the..." See morem, he asked me to make them again. They may not be a "crave" food, but they are a great taste-buds adventure. I will be making them many times in the future. Note: I always do my yams in the microwave, as I seem to always be running short on time. Two yams, 6-8 minutes on each side should do it (instead of 40min-1hr in the oven). Don't forget to poke holes in the yams first, though! Thanks for a great recipe!"
"I've never liked yams so I've never bothered to cook them. Recently I had my boyfriend over for dinner and he happens to love yams. I found this recipe and after reading the reviews thought, I'll tr..." See morey it! After talking to some people who love yams, I was having some reservations with the combination of ingredients. I made this and decided to just cut one potato in half first and we'd try it. It was absolutely the most delicious potato I have eaten in my life!!! WOW! We're having the leftovers tonight! My boyfriend was very impressed and he now calls them "Yam Jammers". The only thing is, I made two Yams and it took double the time to cook..but I think the secret is to put the Yams directly on the rack of the oven and a cookie sheet underneath to catch the drippings. Thank you so much for an awesome recipe!!"
"I was surprised by this combination, but I like avocados and I like yams, so I thought I'd try it. It was truly wonderful! I loved every mouthful, and ate the leftovers for several days. I plan on ..." See moremaking again and again. I'm even considering making a two layer dip (yams and guacamole) for our next party. Thanks so much for the recipe!"
