  1. Place all ingredients into your crockpot and cook on high for about 4 hours or until sweet potatoes are soft enough to pierce with a fork.

For Tortilla Strips

1. Preheat oven to Broil. Then, spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

2. Next, using a pizza cutter, slice mini tortillas into strips. Then, arrange them on 2. the baking sheet so that they are not touching.

My favorite way to eat this stew is paired with short grain brown rice personally cooked in your rice cooker. OHHHH I am about to go make another batch of this!

What’s great about this recipe, is that you can add whatever veggies, beans, or grains you have in your kitchen. Next time I’m adding more beans like kidney and black. Quinoa or brown rice would also be a delicious addition.
