  1. Lightly coat a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine chipotle peppers, salt, pepper, and paprika. Rub mixture over the pork. Place pork in the slow cooker. Top with sweet potatoes, onion and LUCKY LEAF Apple Pie Filling.
  2. Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours. Remove pork and apple mixture from slow cooker. Cover with foil and let stand 10 minutes. Transfer cooking liquid to a medium saucepan. Stir together 1/4 cup water and 3 tablespoons flour. Add to saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat until mixture is thickened and bubbly; cook and stir 1 minute more. Slice pork and serve with apple mixture and thickened sauce.


  • *Because hot chile peppers, such as chipotles, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.

This was an incredible slow cooker recipe! I skipped the pie filling and used fresh apples seasoned with sugar and cinnamon, as suggested by other reviewers. It will make a perfect fall/winter...

This turned out great! I did only put in 1 chipotle pepper and that was plenty of heat. Left it sit all day in the crock and the meat just fell apart. I didn't end up thickening the juices bu...

My family loved this recipes. I have 7 growing boys so I had to add extra sweet potates and added 5 extra apples and cooked it on slow for 8 hours. The gravy was the best part and it turned ou...

This was really tasty. I made it as stated except I added 10-15 baby carrots, and one peeled, chopped apple. I cooked it on low for 8 hours and the meat was juicy, tender and flavorful. I rea...
