The bananas are what give this dish its tropical taste.  Be sure to remove any brown spots from the bananas before slicing them.  For a little spice add a chopped Serrano pepper in with the onions and garlic.  Because sweet potatoes differ so much in size only use enough to make a single layer over the onions and garlic.
