yam-chili recipe

Date:    Wed, 07 Dec 94 01:14:12 EST
 From:    "Aliza R. Panitz" (buglady@access.digex.net)
 1 40-oz can yams/sweet potatoes
 1 29-oz can tomato puree
 1-2 cup dried beans (*)
 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
 1 Tbs. Dehydrated onion
 1 tsp Black Pepper
 1 Tbs. Chili powder
 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
 Cook up the beans normally (soak, boil, simmer).
 Pour yams into pot, including liquid.  Smash lightly.  Add tomato puree,
 stir through.  Add spices, stir through.  Add cooked beans, stir through.
 Simmer for for a few minutes to mellow out.
 (*) Beans:  I keep a 'bean bucket' of mixed beans, usually including
 pea beans, black-eyed peas, pinto beans, split peas, lentils, navy beans,
 pinto beans; often including great northern beans, roman beans, pink
 beans, chili beans, barley, and others.  Whenever there's room in the 
 bucket I pour in a bag of something that seems underrepresented.
 This would probably be better with fresh yams and tomatoes, but the
 canned yams were on sale half price the day after Thanksgiving...
