Cuban Style Pork and Sweet Potato Slow Cooker Stew with Wild Rice
I had this in the slow cooker during one of my busy baking days last week when I knew most of my night would have been spent on NOT cooking dinner.  This is another Weight Watchers recipe.  This is a seven point dish for a cup and a half of the stew, which is A LOT of food …and a very good use of points.  This point count does not include the wild rice which is about 2 points for half a cup of wild rice.  This is super tasty and filling, definitely a great slow cooker recipe you will have to try on one of your busy days. 
I added a couple extra things to my stew such as 2 jalapenos and a large red onion.  I like my food spicy as you can see by the chili pepper flakes! 
Here’s the recipe since I won’t be able to link to the WW site. 


Ingredients
 1 pound(s)   uncooked sweet potato(es), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (I kept the peel on)
