West African Groundnut Stew (Mafe)

This is a yummy spicy stew, popular in Western Africa, particularly Senegal, Gambia, Mali and the Ivory Coast. Traditionally, it's made with black-eyed peas, but you can sub stew meat (usually chicken or beef) if you like! I was a little bit uncertain about the peanut butter, but it balanced the spiciness really well and gave the stew a creamy texture.
