Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Medium dice the sweet potatoes. Halve, pit, and medium dice the peaches. Roughly chop the jalapeño pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the diced peaches and as much of the chopped jalapeño pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat.
