At my husband’s urging, “You need to put this on your blog!” So here it is…

Sausage and Ham with Black Beans & Sweet Potato Stew (Serves two)

1 tsp. oil

1/4 lb. ground Italian sausage or chorizo

1/3 lb. cooked ham or turkey sausage

1 med onion, chopped

1 T. minced garlic

1 sweet potato, peeled/diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes and juice

2 T. chopped green chili or jalapenos (adjust to your taste)

1/2 c. water

1 can black beans, rinsed/drained

1/4 tsp salt

Heat oil to cook ground sausage and ham. Add onion, garlic and bell pepper – cook until tender. Mix in sweet potato, tomatoes & juice, black beans, pepper and water. Bring to a boil. Simmer about 15 minutes or until sweet potato is tender.

Wish I had taken a photo…sorry! But it is a very colorful soup so it feeds the eyes and the pallet. Two combinations in cooking that I love!
