Don't have a garlic press? Lay the garlic cloves on a chopping board, then place a chef’s knife on top and press down firmly to crush. Finely chop the garlic. Roughly chop cilantro. Core, then cut pepper into 1/4-inch pieces. Zest and juice half the lime. Cut remaining lime into wedges. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Pat pork dry with paper towels, then cut into 2-inch pieces.
Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then the pork. Cook, until golden-brown and cooked through, 1-2 min per side.** Transfer to a plate and set aside. (NOTE: Cook pork in two batches for 4 ppl, using 1 tbsp oil for each batch!)
Add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to the same pot, then peppers, garlic and half the cilantro. Cook, stirring often, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of the pot, until peppers soften, 2-3 min. Add Mexican seasoning and 3/4 tsp smoked paprika (dbl for 4 ppl). Season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat.
Add crushed tomatoes, corn, pork (including any juices from the plate), broth concentrate(s) and 1/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) to the same pot. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-high. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 5-6 min.
While stew cooks, mix together sour cream, lime juice and 1/4 tsp lime zest (dbl for 4 ppl) in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide stew between bowls. Sprinkle over cheese, remaining cilantro and dollop over lime crema. Serve with tortilla chips and squeeze over a lime wedge, if desired.
