This classic favorite gets a bit of sweet and spicy with the addition of jalapeños and sweet potatoes.


Make It

Step 1

Combine water, lentils and sweet potato in a 3-quart saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until water is absorbed and lentils and sweet potatos are tender (should look like a pilaf).

Step 2

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion and garlic; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes with juice, evaporated milk and bouillon; cook for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Add tomato mixture to lentils and sweet potatoes; cook for a few minutes just to heat through. Remove from heat; stir in jalapeños. Garnish with cilantro.
