Mango and Black Bean Stew

Mango and Black Bean Stew created by SAHS7930

This recipe is the only vegetarian dish I've been able to get my family to enjoy - and they really enjoyed it! Since sweet potatoes are so hard to chop up raw, I go ahead and boil them ahead of time until they're just tender enough that I don't need a chainsaw to get through them. Non-vegetarians can feel free to add 1/8 pound chopped sausage and/or ham with the onion in the first step.

    I had all items fresh in my refrigerator and love each and every ingredient added but somehow didn't enjoy this very blah recipe. After we decided we didn't like it, we made brown rice, topped with Mexican sauce and added the stew. It was just okay. I have had something similar so I though it would be good. Disappointed.

    This was easy, and so delicious! I like the tip about the par cooking the sweet potato. The only change I made was to use canned tomatoes, because I was out of fresh. I will definitely be making this again soon.

    I loved this stew! The mix of flavors was great, and it was fairly easy to make.

    I know most might not want to do this recipe the way I did, but I like unpeeled sweet potatoes & used them when I made this stew! I diced them up, unpeeled, not more than 1/2" to 3/4" square & went on with my preparations from there! We really enjoyed the combo of sweet potato, mango & black beans, & the use of fresh cilantro was particularly satisfying! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]
