Key Ingredients


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.
