If using canned yams, cut in small chunks and stir in at the end of cooking.


1 1/4 lbs. sweet potatoes (yams), peeled and cut into 1" cubes or 2 (15 oz.) cans sweet potatoes drained
1 3/4 lbs. pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat and cut into 1" pieces
1/4 c. all purpose flour
1 c. chopped red onion
2 c. fat free chicken broth, more if needed to thin stew
1 (16-oz.) pkg. frozen corn
1 (10-oz.) can chopped tomatoes
1 (4-oz.) can diced green chilies, drained
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
Salt and pepper to taste


1Toss pork with flour to coat.
2In a large pot coated with nonstick cooking spray, brown pork over medium heat about 5 to 7 minutes. Add onions and cook until tender.
3Add broth, tomatoes and green chilies, sweet potatoes, chili powder, cumin, diced green chilies and corn. Bring mixture to a boil, lower heat and simmer until potatoes are tender and pork is done, approximately 45 minutes.
