Sayulita Yam Oranges
Since it is almost Thanksgiving I think you guys should try this easy recipe that just shouts Sayulita Thanksgiving! I call it Sayulita Yam- Oranges.


  • 6 sweet potatoes, unpeeled
  • 1/2 stick butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 6 large oranges (heavy for their size)
  • 48 vanillla marshmallows


Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cover sweet potatoes / yams with cold water in a large pot and boil. Peel the yams and put them all into a bowl and mash. Stir in butter and orange juice and mix until all the ingredients are mushed together.
For the orange shells, cut each orange in half and scoop out the insides or pulp using a small knife.
Fill each orange shell with the potato mixture and top off with the marshmallows. Bake until the marshmallows are melted.
Hope you have fun and you enjoy eating Sayulita Yam Oranges- Feliz dia de Gracias!
