Mexican-Style Pork and Sweet Potato Stew

1 small green pepper - use a small poblano chile
1 pound lean pork loin, boneless pork roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup canned chicken broth
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 small onion, chopped
14 1/2 oz canned diced tomatoes, fire-roasted, undrained
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice

Turn on a stovetop burner and place poblano chile over open flame; carefully turn to char on all sides. Place poblano in a plastic or paper bag; close bag and set aside 10 minutes to steam. Rub poblano skin off with hands under cold running water; core, seed and dice poblano. (Note: If you have an electric range, broil poblano on high, 3 inches from flame, turning occasionally, until charred on all sides. Follow remaining directions above.)
Place pork in a 5-quart slow cooker. Add broth, sweet potato, onion, poblano chile, tomatoes, cumin, salt and pepper; stir. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 6 to 7 hours. Add lime juice and stir well. Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.
Serves 4.
