Recipe Ingredients for Southwestern Sweet Potato Corn Medley

1 1/2 pounds fresh yams
1 1/2 cups frozen corn
1/4 cup chopped onion
3 tbs lime juice
1 tsp chili powder
3 T chopped fresh basil leaves

Recipe Directions for Southwestern Sweet Potato Corn Medley

  1. The Directions.

  2. This is a good recipe for a 3-4 quart crockpot. If you have a larger one, consider doubling for leftovers, or stay close by so the sweet potatoes don't over cook and turn to mush.

  3. Peel and cube the sweet potato into 1-inch or so chunks. Plop them into the crock. Add diced onion, the drained corn, and the fresh basil leaves. Sprinkle in the chili powder and salt. Squeeze the limes, and then toss everything so the seasoning is dispersed somewhat evenly.

  4. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours, or on high for 3-4. This is done when the potatoes have reached desired tenderness.

  5. The Verdict.

  6. A delicious, and incredibly healthy side dish, or in my case, lunch for the next 3 days. The kids didn't like the lime flavor at all.

  7. oh well, more for me!
