It's fall... which means my crockpot is in use at least 3-4 times a week.
It's a good thing I have two :)
Tonight's crockpot meal is Chicken tortilla soup. YUM.
I believe I've shared that recipe on here before... but due to the disorganization of this blog (I'm working on labeling and archiving my posts every night!) I have no clue where that recipe is...
Anyways, I thought I'd share what we're eating on Halloween. It's been a tradition since Ryan and I were first married. I remember flipping through my cookbooks and recipes, trying to find something that sounds like "Halloween." And I saw... "Pirate Stew!" That's sooo Halloween :)
And here's the recipe:
take out your crockpot.
and make sure you have the following on hand and ready to go:
3/4 cup (I use a full cup because I like onions. a lot.) diced onion
1 lb. ground beef (this year we'll be doing turkey)
1/4 cup uncooked, long grain rice
3 cups raw potatoes, diced
1 cup diced celery
2 cups (cans) of kidney beans
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
WOAH that sounds like a lot of stuff... :) But I promise... its worth it :)
1. Brown onions and ground beef (or turkey) in skillet, drain all that nasty fat away :)
2.Layer ingredients in your crockpot in the order given... example: first goes in the g.beef & onions, then the rice, potatoes, etc.
3. Cover, and cook on low for 6 hours. Or until potatoes and rice are cooked :)
The recipe doesn't call for cheese but we all know that nothing is truly good without some kind of cheese... SO I always top my bowl off with some good ol' cheddar. :)
I shared with you... won't you share with me?
Leave me your fave. crockpot recipe :) pleeeeassse??? :)
