This recipe is similar to what I ate in Sierra Leone, though we only had sweet potatoes. All stews like this had chopped tomatoes and sweet potato leaf. Chopped peanuts were sprinkled on top. Habenero-like chilies were widely available and made stews HOT!!! Palm oil would give this a nice color but it's hard to find in the States. Everything was cooked in iron pots over an open fire and everything was delicious! So, that's what I did to this recipe - sweet potatoes instead of potatoes, added tomatoes, used chicken and pork (though goat would have been more authentic), the garbanzos are great, and more chilies. I used a crock pot for about 5 hours on high. Thanks for the memories, Leah. It was fun making this stew!
