If you’re looking for comforting fall foods, get out your crockpot and give this Slow Cooker Southwestern Pork Stewa try. It’s so good on a cool, crisp evening.
Fall always seems to come slowly in the south. It makes a tentative step one day, then retreats the next. We’ll have a cool, clear day followed by a humid and sultry one the next. That’s just the way it happens here. So far this year, those cool, clear days have been very few. We’ve had lots of rain, lots of humidity, and not much leaf color yet.
But I can tell it’s on the way. Every time I look out my windows it seems like there are a few more golden leaves out there than there were the day before.
This is the time of year that we all tend to start gathering inward. We pull out our sweaters and boots, the gardens stop producing, leaves start falling, and for many of us our appetites change to warmer more comforting foods.
I use my slow cookers all year round, but in the fall and winter they seem to work overtime. I really enjoy being able to pop all the ingredients in there, set and cover the cooker, and come back hours later to find our dinner ready and waiting.

I’m going to add potatoes when there’s 3 hours left on low. Do you think that’s ok? my house smells amazing!!! ?
It’s okay with me.
It’s most definitely feeling like fall up here in Canada… the leaves are changing, the days are getting shorter and shorter, and the nights are getting downright chilly.
This weather’s given me a serious hankering for slow-cooked comfort food, and this stew looks like it’s just the thing to put those cravings to rest! You just can’t go wrong with pork and green chiles as far as I’m concerned.
Yes! Pork and green chiles are a winner every time!
I make a green pork stew that is very similar to this – and it’s one of my families favorite cooler weather meals. My mouth is watering just looking at yours…plus, I don’t make mine in the crockpot, so I have to give yours a try soon!
I’m sure yours is much more authentic, Heather, but this is so quick and easy plus no watching or stirring while the slow cooker works!
This looks absolutely amazing Lana. I really love this recipe. Nothing better than a great slow cooker recipe, especially one for stew. Would have been perfect for today. We froze our tushes off at the barn this afternoon, lol.
We’re still waiting for cooler weather here, Kim. Supposed to cool down to about 70 degrees today and we’re looking forward to that!
This dish warms my soul. So comforting!
It is, Tasha. Very comforting and soul warming.
This is the perfect fall meal!! I’m pinning this! Pure comfort food for a cold day.
Thank you, Ashley! It is really great comfort food and I hope you’ll make it for yourself sometime.
