4 servings

Total time

35 minutes




  • 2 lbs sweet Potato (, cubed into 1/2 inch pieces (about 2 medium sweet potatoes, or 6 cups))
  • optional: 1 jalapeno pepper (, seeds removed and finely diced)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • salt & pepper (, to taste (1/4 teaspoon is a good start))
  • 1 lb Italian sausage meat ((4 sausages, removed from casings))
  • 1 green bell pepper (, diced into 1/2 inch pieces)
  • 1 yellow onion (, diced into 1/2 inch pieces)
  • 2 celery ribs (, diced into 1/8 inch pieces)
  • 3 garlic cloves (, minced)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano ((or 1 tablespoon fresh))
  • juice of 1/2 lime ((about 1 tablespoon))


  1. Preheat a large skillet (12 inches wide with high sides is ideal) with vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the diced sweet potato and jalapeno, if using and spread evenly around the skillet. Allow the sweet potato to cook undisturbed for 2-3 minutes, so that it starts to brown. Stir well, season with salt and pepper, and allow to cook another 2-3 minutes undisturbed.
  2. Push the sweet potato to one side and add the sausage meat. Cook over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes, breaking up the sausage meat so that it cooks on all sides.
  3. Stir the sweet potato and sausage meat together. Add the diced pepper, onion, and garlic and stir well. Cover with a lid and continue to cook stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes, or until the sweet potato is fully cooked and a fork can easily pierce it. Remove from heat, stir in oregano and lime juice.
