Cuban Pork and Sweet Potato Stew

READY IN: 4hrs 20mins
Recipe by whatwouldruthdo

Lean pork, fresh sweet potatoes, canned black beans and traditional Cuban flavors blend beautifully in your slow cooker to provide you with a healthy, easy weeknight meal that's special enough for company. If you are afraid of too much heat, use only one can of Rotel and substitute a can of diced tomatoes for the second can.

Really yummy! Savory, sour, a bit spicy and the little sweetness of the sweet potatoes really pulled it together. My only complaint was that it was a smidge more watery than I would've liked, but it's a small adjustment. I might add some tomato sauce to it.
