Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 2 red bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (8 ounce) jar chunky salsa
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. 2 Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Crumble sausage into skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until browned and no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Remove sausage with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  3. 3 Pour off all but 1 tablespoon oil from the skillet. Heat oil over medium heat and add bell peppers, onion and garlic and cook until softened, about 7 minutes.
  4. 4 Add to the skillet the potatoes, sausage, salsa and cumin. Stir and cook about 5 minutes to heat through and blend flavors. Season with salt and pepper.

  1. Awesome dish! I roasted my sweet potatoes instead of boiling them as I find boiling them tends to take away most of their flavour. This was great the day of but leftovers were even better.
  2. i thought this was good. i will make it again. however, the type of salsa you use makes a huge difference in the recipe. so be warned use a good salsa, it makes and breaks the recipe. period.
  3. I really wasn't sure what this was going to be like but I had sweet potatoes red bell peppers and leeks in my CSA box last week. I used the leeks instead of the onions and garlic and I cooked the sweet potatoes in the microwave otherwise as written. It is one of the most - Read more ...
  4. I was looking for a recipe for peppers and sausage because my girls really like those ingredients but when I saw this recipe I had to try it because I am not as fond of peppers. I really liked this. I liked how the salsa brought everything together. I used "Gimme Lean" vegetarian sausage. My - Read more ...
  5. Made this dish last night for dinner. Only had green bell peppers on hand so I used that. I diced up and boiled separately while cutting up rest of veggies. I also added some garlicand used turkey sausage (not the crumbling kind). Maybe that is what turned it a bit. My 5 yr old thought - Read more ...
  6. The adults at the table all loved this recipe. So different and yet so good! Even with the peeling and chopping of the potatoes this dish was ready in 30 minutes- my idea of a good meal. The children were less enthusiastic. But that's because they believe all sweet potatoes should be mashed and very - Read more ...
  7. This was a great recipe. I boiled the sweet potatoes for 11 minutes and they were perfect. Instead of italian sausage I used italian seasoned turkey sausage to make it a little bit healthier. I used spicy chipotle salsa in mine. (I used a 17.5 oz jar...8 would not have been enough.) Chipotle goes really - Read more ...
  8. Very very tasty! I used the pre-packaged 'seasoning blend' of veggies (onions bell peppers celery) which made it that much easier. Will make again and again.
  9. This was really surprisingly tasty! I used plain ol' bulk sausage (Jimmy Dean) browned it and then just added the veggies at that point rather than removing the sausage or adding additional oil. I 1/2" diced both the sweet potatoes and two LARGE red bell peppers and boiled the potatoes 10 minutes -- anything more - Read more ...
