Ain't We Lucky We Got 'Em, Good Times

Mexican Sweet Potato Chicken Stew

This was born out of a Woman's Day recipe I made a few years ago with pork.  http://www.womansday.com/food-recipes/food-drinks/recipes/a10699/mexican-pork-sweet-potato-stew-122121/  Sweet potatoes work really well with pork but chicken was no slouch in this either. In fact it was dynamite!  And I was able to use what I had.
Sweet potatoes, carrots, Yukon potatoes, corn, tomatoes were added along with cilantro and thyme, onion and garlic.  The secret ingredient is 1-1/2 cups of a homemade roasted hot sauce and real chicken stock.  What could be better than adding heat to a homey comfort stew?  I also left the bones on while cooking because the meat falls off anyway and this way the thighs give up all of their offerings to the soup.
I served it with freshly made tortilla strips and yogurt to cut the heat.
