How to make sweet potato stew

Peel and chop (into small ½-inch chunks) about 8 cups worth or about 8 medium (5″ long) sweet potatoes. Costco has a large container of organic and already peeled and chopped sweet potatoes, which is great to use for convenience.

Chop the carrots, celery, onion, and garlic and add everything into a large pot. Cover and bring to boil and then once it comes to a boil turn down the heat to simmer for about 30 minutes. 

I highly recommend adding a little dash of cayenne pepper or chili powder to this sweet potato stew for a sweet and spicy kick- if you are into that kinda thing:-).
