Dice the sweet potatoes and boil them in water until tender (about 20 minutes, discard water and set aside).

Saute` the onion, bell pepper, and garlic until tender (about 7 minutes).

Add all remaining ingredients except the sweet potatoes and beans. Cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add beans and sweet potatoes, reduce heat and cook 15 minutes. Serve hot with the Savory Molasses Cornbread
