For the beans I used 1 can kidney, 1 can black and 1 can chickpeas. I also used 4 serranos instead of jalapeno. Are supermarket peppers getting more mild or is it just me? I should have put in at least 2 more. Added a couple bay leaves, touch of allspice and dried parsley. Followed the cooking instructions as written, but next time I will do the procedure a bit different. I will brown the meat in batches as the first step. As written the garlic started to burn before I could get a good sear, and the pot is too crowded to get a good fond. Also I think I will peel and cut up the sweet potatoes first before microwaving, just for ease in handling. I found I wanted to thicken it at the end since it was very soupy, and just used some cornstarch dissolved in water. Still, the finished stew even though not perfect was delicious and very gorgeous with all those colors! It just seems these flavors belong together. I feel healthier just looking at it: Nutrient City! I'll be making this often.
