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.

Excellent one dish meal. I would have given it 5 stars except the cooking times are way off. The pork needs more than 7 minutes, unless you want trichinosis. And the sweet potatoes take at least 20 minutes (more like 30 minutes) to reach even al dente. I added extra hot peppers so it had great heat. The cumin adds good flavor. I skipped the cinnamon as I am not a fan. I also added a few beans to add fiber and protein. My husband says it is definitely a "make-again" recipe. Maybe even for deer camp or dinner company.

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

Delicious! Our local supermarket didn't have any chipotle salsa in stock (we live in very rural Maine so not altogether surprising), so I added a couple of chipotles in adobo to a medium salsa instead. Made it pretty fiery but really tasty! Will definitely be making this again.

Very hearty, tasty, and easy to make. I'll make it again and maybe add some different vegetables.

Yummy! Was a big hit with toddlers and adults. Added a can of diced tomatoes and black beans, and we eased off the spicy stuff.

Absolutely loved this dish! I cut down on the poblano peppers, and it was still pretty spicy, but so delicious! I also added sliced carrots with the onion, peppers, and potatoes. This is definitely a keeper recipe!

This is a great stew for our cold winters. The only change that I made was to use 2 cans of chopped chile peppers instead the poblano, as that is what I had. The flavors blend wonderfully. The next time I 'll add a can of beans, just to try it out. This recip , as is, is wonderful and the family really enjoyed it.

Perfect fall comfort food! The only change I made was to substitute a can of pinto beans for the corn. Can't wait for dinner!
