Sweet & Spicy Coconut and Sweet Potato Stew

Here's the latest sample of deliciousness from Misty's kitchen.  It's a soup/stew made in the Crock-Pot with sweet potatoes, coconut milk, green onions, and Thai-spices.

"Whenever you get a chance to use a can of coconut milk in soup, you know it's going to be good," Misty said.  And it was.

The recipe she found via Pinterest called for ground turkey, but she substituted ground chicken instead (since it was a much better price this week at the grocery store).

I liked the taste on my first bite and didn't find it very spicy.  Then a second later the spice crept up and slapped me in the face.  It still wasn't overbearing though -- after a couple more bites, I was used to it.

This was a perfect soup for fall -- one I'm looking forward to enjoying again tonight as we polish off the leftovers.
