Crock Pot Chicken Chipotle Stew

chipotle chicken soup

There are very few meals my husband gets excited about let alone comments on, but this recipe for Crock Pot chipotle chicken stew? Holy canolies people, he WOULD NOT stop saying this is good… this is really good.

He even asked where I got the recipe from {this NEVER happens!}. The funny thing is, Monkey Boy gave me a Crock Pot Cookbook for Christmas and this was just one of the many recipes I’ve been wanting to try since December. It’s a keeper, that’s for sure.

Ingredients

1 pound chicken breasts, cooked and cut into cubes
1 can navy beans, rinsed and drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 14oz can diced tomatoes undrained {or 2 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped}
1 onion, chopped
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1 bay leaf

Crock Pot Chicken Chipotle Stew

Directions

Toss everything into the crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours. Remove bay leaf before serving. Garnish with guacamole, sour cream or cilantro if you have it.

This soup is PERFECT for leftovers and freezes well too.

Slow Cooker Coconut & Almond Rice Pudding

Slow Cooker Coconut & Almond Rice Pudding

Slow Cooker Coconut & Almond Rice PuddingI’m sure I sound like a broken record every time I post a good recipe. “It’s sooo good.” “Try it now.” “It’s da bomb!”

But then, of course I’m going to go on and on about how much I love it. If I’m posting it, it’s because it was awesome. Why on earth would I post a junky, gross-tasting recipe for you guys? I wouldn’t. Although I’ve made a bunch of those gross recipes through the years, I just keep those to myself and only share the gems! So when you hear me go off about how totally awesome a recipe is, know that it’s been tested and loved by me {and/or my family}.

Kinda like this rice pudding recipe that’s awesome.

Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese

Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese

Slow Cooker Macaroni and CheeseSometimes, when it’s freezing outside and I’m totally over winter, I just need some good ole comfort food to keep the Winter Blues away. And nothings screams comfort food like some hearty mac and cheese. So I made some. In my slow cooker. And it rocked my socks off.

It was melt-in-your-mouth good. And when eating it, just remember the motto I sick to: when consuming comfort food, calories don’t count. Good thing too, because I ate an embarrassing amount of this. So go put on some elastic waist pants and get to eating this already. You can thank me later.

Ingredients

8 oz cooked elbow macaroni
1 {12 oz} can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 stick {1/4 cup} butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 large eggs
5 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1/8 teaspoon paprika

Slow Cooker Macaroni and CheeseDirections

Coat the inside of a large slow cooker with BUTTER, lots and lots of butter. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, reserving 1/2 cup of cheese. Pour into slow cooker and top with reserved cheese. Sprinkle with paprika. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Vegetarian Lentil Stew with Sweet Potatoes

Crock Pot Vegetarian Lentil Stew with Sweet Potatoes

Crock Pot Vegetarian Lentil Stew with Sweet Potatoes

This recipe for vegetarian lentil stew with sweet potatoes was inspired by a recipe from my friend MamaJJ. Her recipe called for black beans and chicken broth. But I didn’t have that so I swapped out the black beans for lentils, chicken broth for vegetable broth and reduced the spices just a bit.

Recipes are funny that way. Sometimes you have all the ingredients, and sometimes you don’t. And that’s okay. Just make do with what you have I say. 😉

The HH, Francisco and I all loved this recipe!

Ingredients
3 cups lentils, rinsed
1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped
1 onion, minced
2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
2 quarts vegetable broth {homemade vegetable broth recipe}
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro or 2 tablespoons dried
salt and pepper to taste

Crock Pot Vegetarian Lentil Stew with Sweet Potatoes

Directions

Place all the ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours. Now seriously, how easy is that?

Put the onion, chopped carrots, sweet potato, garlic, and oil in a large soup pot. Cook over medium high head until mostly tender, 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Do not brown. Add the chili powder and cumin and stir to combine.

Add the broth and beans and cook until heated through and the flavors have had time to get acquainted, about 10 minutes. Stir in the cilantro and weeds. Taste to correct seasonings and serve. Feel free to condimentize, but we did not.

Crock Pot Ground Beef w/ Taco Seasoning

Crock Pot Ground Beef w Taco Seasoning

Crock Pot Ground Beef w Taco Seasoning

Since I started cooking my ground beef in the Crock Pot back when I got my 40lbs of Zaycon ground beef, I just can’t stop. It makes dinner time a snap. Now I’m experimenting with different seasonings so I can freeze seasoned ground beef for even easier dinners! Here’s how I combine my DIY Taco Seasoning Mix with the Crock Pot cooking method. Easy peasy!

First, go whip yourself up a big batch of my DIY Taco Seasoning Mix & then head back here and get started:

Crock Pot Ground Beef w Taco Seasoning

Ingredients

4 pounds of ground beef {I used Zaycon ground beef of course}
8 tablespoons of DIY Taco Seasoning Mix

Crock Pot Ground Beef w Taco Seasoning

Directions

Place four pounds of meat in crock pot. Completely break up meat if you plan to walk away from your crock pot & leave it. The meat will cook exactly as you left it. Sprinkle seasonings on top of meat and mix in thoroughly {a lot of the seasoning cooks off, so feel free to add more than you normally would}.

Cook on low for about 5 hours or high for 2.5 hours. Once meat is completely cooked through, drain all of the fat off {You can throw frozen meat in the crock pot too, just cook for 2 hours on high and then break it up in the crock pot. Then follow the cooking instructions above}. Ignore the fact that it looks like you just cooked a bunch of brown worms, let it cool and then transfer to Ziploc bags or Gladware containers. If you’re looking to freeze 1 lb bags for taco recipes, about 2.5 cups of cooked meat is equivalent to 1 lb {give or take}.
