Notes

*This recipes calls for sweet potatoes, however, if you don't have any on hand, or are wanting to switch it up, you could definitely make this recipe using other potatoes. This would be delicious with russet, or baby reds. 
You could make this in a stock pot. We recommend cooking the potatoes a little bit forehand if you are making it in a stock pot.
You may also need a little more liquid as it sneaks out into the air and you lose all that steam when cooking it in a stock pot.
For the best and quick results, we do recommend using a slow cooker.
