Sweet Potato & Spicy Chorizo Stew

October 25, 2017

Author Notes: This hearty meat stew dish is slightly sweet due to the chosen vegetables and mildly spicy from the chorizo sausage (often made with smoked paprika and salt). This slow-simmered stew is a perfect go-to recipe when you have little time to cook dinner.Mariska
