Cue up some gorgeous colours with this South American-style palette. Sweet potatoes are a favourite of Peruvian cuisine—that’s where the tubers are originally from—and they shine when pre-diced, roasted and sprinkled with our In the Andes spice blend (full of ancho chili peppers and sesame). They stand out against a tangy dark red sauce that combines sweet pepper with tomato sauce, vinegar and soy. Deliciously tender ground pork meatballs, flecked with fresh parsley, get this meal rolling along nicely.

Prepare & cook the meatballs
In a large bowl, gently mix the pork, ⅓ of the parsley, ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Form the mixture into 10 meatballs (double for 4 portions) about the size of a golf ball. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Cook the meatballs, partially covered, turning occasionally, 7 to 9 min., until browned and partially cooked. Transfer to a bowl, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Make the sauce & coat the meatballs
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the onions, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the sweet pepper and sauté, 1 to 2 min., until softened. Add the vinegar, soy sauce, tomato sauce, ⅓ cup water (double for 4 portions), the remaining spices and S&P; stir well. Return the meatballs* and cook, 2 to 3 min., until cooked through and coated with the sauce.
