Spicy Scalloped Yams

  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 55
  • Total Time: 65


  • 34 medium sized yams, peeled
  • 2 cups Heavy whipping cream
  • 13 TB canned Adobo sauce/chipotle puree
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. – Preheat oven to 375.
  2. – In a food processor, slice yams about 1/8th inch thick. Set aside.
  3. – Mince 1-3 chipotles depending on how spicy you like it. *Always taste your adobo sauce and chipotles to see how spicy they are. The level of spice varies in each can regardless if it’s the same brand or not. I made this mistake once and added a whole can because the previous one had little spice. Needless to say, the time I just added without tasting was WAY too hot.
  4. – In a blender, add heavy cream, minced chipotle, and some of the adobo sauce. Blend till combined. DO NOT OVER BLEND or you’ll have whipped cream.
  5. – Taste your mixture to see if you need more spice.
  6. – In a 9 x 13 baking dish, add some of the chipotle and cream mixture to cover the bottom of the dish.
  7. – Overlap the yams on the bottom of the dish. Salt and pepper, then drizzle chipotle cream mix over the yams.
  8. – Repeat the last step to create multiple layers. Make sure the top layer of yams is covered well with the chipotle cream.
  9. – Bake covered for 20 minutes, remove foil, then bake for another 35 or until yams are tender.
  10. – Serve hot.
