The first time I made this, it had a lot of heat. However, the second time I made it, it was not so bad. I really love this stew. I used sweet potatoes the second time around and it turned out great.

I have now made this twice and LOVE it! I put sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes, which made it sweet and spicy at the same time. The second time I also threw in some chicken thighs and let it simmer for an hour. It made it a complete meal with protein.

This is delicious! The first time I made it, I didn't have any Niter Kibeh, but it still tasted wonderful with plain butter. The second time I made it, I used Niter Kibeh but reduced the quantity to 2 tbsp. Thanks for a great recipe!
