    justcallmetoni's Note:

    The appeared in Womans Day Magazine and the photo set my heart aflutter. Need to do a little decluttering so I wanted to type it up and decided to take a chance and post it untried. Great ingredients combined with easy preparation and a short cooking time. What's not to love? Even better it is WW Core and just 5 points on Flex.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the cubed tenderloin and cook for 7 minutes, turning so all sides are browned and the pork is cooked. Remove from pan and set aside.
    2. 2
      Add the remaining teaspoon of oil to the pan along with the onions, peppers and sweet potatoes. Cover and cook for three minutes until the vegetables begin to soften. Add the sweet potatoes, continuing to cook another 2 to 3 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the garlic, cumin and cinnamon, stirring so that the spices are well mixed into the vegetables. There should be a nice aroma at this point. Stir in the water and broth and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and add in the corn. Cook covered for 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add in the salsa and the cooked pork. Cook until heated through. If you are using salsa from the fridge, I would suggest adding it a minute before the meat so that it cn heat up without leaving the tender meat tough.
    5. 5
      Garnish with cilantro and serve with warm tortillas or tortilla chips.

      This turned out AMAZING. As others suggested, I added carrots, beans and a can of diced tomatoes with chiles. Delicious.

      This was very good. The cinnamon really makes this dish interesting. I didn't have any poblanos so used about 1.5 chipotles in adobo minced finely. I think next time I will use a bit more. Like others I also added a can of black beans. The directions are a little strange (add in the sweet potatoes in 2 different places, there is no way my sweet potatoes could cook in that little time) but that was a minor issue. Thanks for posting. I'll make this often.
