I am trying to start using the crockpot more for dinners, as that will free me up to do other things. Especially the next couple weeks as I try to get my house in better shape/set up a routine. Does anyone have any simple recipes they enjoy? For our Sunday lunch today, I just threw in rice (2 cups since I was using 1 qt. broth), leftover chicken, frozen green beans, and chicken broth. Add some salt, pepper, and garlic powder. When we got back from church it was done. It was tasty, but I need some more ideas like that if you have any to share
"Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer." Psalm 19:14
That is my favorite utensil. I posted one alread but I had some leftovers once I threw i together and it turned out great. I cooked some leftover chicken bits, a couple of carrots and celery, a n end piece of an onion and a potato. I cooked it in water and threw in a a bouillon cube for each cup of water it took to fully cover the veggies. Cooked them on low until potatoes were done and about 20 minutes before serving I added a can of cream of chicken soup. Once I threw in some green beans. Delicious use of leftovers.
I almost forgot, keep the soup condensed. The juice will be enough for thinning it. I have also added a boiled egg.

Soak and prepare dry beans according to package directions. I quick soak and cook mine in a pressure cooker to save time. Brown ground beef or turkey and drain well. Stir all ingredients except spice mix together in crock pot. Add 2-3tbsp of spice mix, depending on how heavy you like your seasoning. Cook on low for four to eight hours or on high for one to three hours.
This usually gives 1 1/2c servings to about six people in our house with plenty of leftovers for the next few days. This chili is super yummy topped with sour cream and Fritos or served with cornbread Leftover spice mix can be used the next time, or sprinkled over popcorn or baked potato wedges for a spicy snack.
