Author Notes: One night I made my special turkey loaf and realized I had forgotten to buy ingredients for a side dish. In a panic, I checked the fridge; all I had were yams, sour cream, butter and a jar of jalapeños. I ended up mixed them together and now we can't have one without the other. —MariGarrett
Serves: 4 +/-
pounds garnet yams, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
cup low fat sour cream
tablespoons salted butter
teaspoon garlic powder
tablespoon ground ginger
cups chopped jarred jalapeños (measure after chopping)
- Boil yams until tender and can be pierced easily with a fork, about 15 minutes (cooking times may vary).
- While yams are boiling, place the sour cream, garlic powder, ginger powder and the jalapeños in a large mixing bowl, and stir until well mixed.
- Add drained yams to the sour cream mixture, add butter and either mash manually with a potato masher or use a hand mixer, until the yam mixture is mashed to your desired consistency. Enjoy!
