  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • ¾ cup diced sweet onion

  • ½ cup chopped celery

  • ½ cup water

  1. Place sweet potatoes, stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, onion, celery, water, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in a slow cooker. Cook on high, stirring occasionally, for 5 hours.
