Smoky Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Chorizo

I've always hated sweet potatoes. Probably because until a couple of years ago, my experience with sweet potatoes was the mashed variety topped with marshmellows. And I'm pretty sure they came out of a can.

This may not look like much, but I promise it tastes better than it looks. Sweet potatoes, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and peppers are all sauteed up with chorizo and chicken. The smoky spices create flavors that make the dish taste like to took a lot more effort to make than it really did.

You'll need a nice big pan, and some patience for peeling and chopping the potatoes, but the Smoky Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Chorizo is worth the effort. What's even better, is that this satisfying one-pot meal can be on the table in 30 minutes. This one could use some lightening up. Use less chorizo and less oil to cut back on calories and fat. The NI is for the recipe as written.
