Twice-Grilled Yams



  1. Preheat grill on MED-HIGH. Coat cleaned grill grate lightly with vegetable oil.
  2. Wrap each yam in aluminum foil; grill covered until tender, 30-40 min, turning occasionally.
  3. Grill peppers until blistered, about 10 min. Remove from grill; peel, seed and chop finely. Brush green onions with olive oil and grill about 8 min, turning occasionally until tender. Remove from grill; chop finely. Combine with peppers.
  4. Unwrap foil partially when yams are cooked; slit and fluff with fork. Add 2 Tbsp Monterey Jack. Add 1/4 each of grilled chopped peppers and green onions to each yam. Season with salt and pepper. Rewrap yams and grill another 5 minutes to melt cheese. Serve immediately.
Chef Tips
For ease of handling and quick peeling, plunge charred peppers immediately into bowl of ice water.
For spicier flavor, add 1 minced jalapeno pepper and 2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro to pepper and scallion mixture in Step #2.
