    1. Season pork cubes with salt and pepper. In large skillet brown pork in 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat, about 5-6 minutes, remove from skillet and reserve. Add remaining oil to pan, sauté onion, pepper and garlic until tender, about 7-8 minutes. Return pork to skillet, stir in paprika, chipotle, and broth. Cook, stirring to remove brown bits on bottom of pan. Reduce heat to low; stir in sweet potato. Cover and simmer 25-35 minutes, until potato and pork are tender.
