  1. Really tasty! The whole family enjoyed it. I doubled it as I have a large crock pot. Lots of leftovers. Will definitely make this again.

  2. I made this last week and it was delicious!  Can’t wait to try another one of your recipes!

  3. Just made this. I added asparagus b/c I had it laying around and needed to use it. DELICIOUS! Brava.

  4. I just added up all the ingredients using the Points Plus calculator, and arrived at 25 points for the whole pot. If it makes 5-6 servings, then that’s 4-5 Points Plus points per serving. Sounds like a great recipe; can’t wait to try it.

  5. This is in my crock pot right now and is making the house smell wonderful. Do you have any idea what the Points plus value is? Thank you for these wonderful WW recipes

    • Not yet…I need to re-make this recipe and record the nutritional stats. :(

        have you updated this recipe for smart points yet?

  6. This looks amazing! Do you have the nutritional information for this recipe? I'd love to see how many calories, sodium, etc it has…

    • Ugh…unfortunately I don't. This recipe was passed along to me a few years ago with only the Weight Watchers Points Value. Sorry – wish I could be more helpful!

  7. I made this the other night and it was amazing! We had it with rice and black beans to make it a cuban night. Great recipe, thanks so much!

  8. I have this in the crockpot right now…but I am a bit nervous…your recipe called for a small can of green chiles, but the Weight Watcher site said to use a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles, now i'm afraid this will be to hot. Anyone have a problem with that? thanks!

  9. I made this last night for some friends. Cooked it in the crockpot and heated it up for lunch today. RAVE reviews!!! It is fantastic!!! I browned the pork with the onion in a little olive oil and also added some chipotle chile powder to the stew. Seriously, everyone wanted a copy of the recipe!

  10. How many 2 cups servings does this make? Could it be doubled and still fit in a 4 quart crock pot?

    • This makes approximately 5-6 servings, depending on the size of your chopped pieces. If you want to double the recipe, you'll need a larger crock pot, as the original recipe is made for a 4-6 quart crock pot.
