Directions

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).
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.
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.
Replace sweet potato with gold potatoes for flavor variation. Omit jalapeños for a mild taste or a kid friendly version.
