Black Bean and Sweet Potato Stew

September 8, 2008

This is what I made at Everyothers last night. It was a surprise hit. Some people asked for the recipe so I’m passing it on. It’s kind of like a Caribbean chili.

I started with a recipe but I changed a number of things.
This is what I did (though I didn’t really measure so it’s approximate)

2 large sweet potatoes peeled and chopped
2 cans black beans drained
3/4 of a large can of tomato puree
1/2 can of Rotel mild tomatoes with green chiles
1.5 cups water
1/2 lb of cooked ground turkey
1 small onion chopped
2 Tbsp Chili Powder
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp Black Pepper
2 tsp Dried Thyme
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Paprika
6 dashes of hot sauce
1 Tbsp Newman Lime Dressing (or about 1 tsp each of lime juice, olive oil, and sugar)
1 Tbsp Gourmet Garden Cilantro in a tube (which I think is equal to a dried amount or maybe a few handfuls fresh)

I just put everything in the Crockpot, mixed it up and set it on low. The potatoes were done in about 10 hours (don’t let it go too long or you’ll end up with mashed potatoes)
