Ingredients

    1 1/3 tbsp olive oil
    1 1/2 cup sweet potato, diced in 1/2" cubes
    3/4 cup onion, diced
    1 medium bell pepper(any color), diced
    2/3 tbsp ground cumin
    1/4 tsp salt

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add olive oil and heat until shimmering. Add sweet potato, onion, pepper, cumin, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion begins to sizzle; about 2 minutes.

    I didn't use the chili sauce, and I think the recipe needed it. It was very easy to prepare and tasted good, if a little bland. I will definitely make this recipe again, but I'll add some garlic and other spices. - 8/17/10
