Flashback Recipe – Southwestern Chicken Chili

Hi Everyone,

I had a post for today, but I am going to hold off until Friday to post it.  Anyway, I couldn’t leave empty handed for a Monday, so today  I am doing a flashback to one of my favorite Crockpot recipes; Southwestern Chicken Chili!  It’s thick, hearty, super easy to make and it’s one of my favorites.  This was the first time I ever had chicken chili and now I am in love.

Scalloped Potatoes in Crockpot #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

If you’re a Crockpot fan you will love today’s #SundaySupper, it’s all Crockpot / slow cooked recipes. I am always looking for new recipes to make in my Crockpot. Nothing beats coming home from a long day of work and having dinner or in my case a side dish waiting for you. For my recipe I have made one of my Husbands favorite side dishes which is Scalloped Potatoes.
Scalloped Potatoes in Crockpot #SundaySupper
I have to admit I am not a scalloped potatoes person, but after today’s recipe I changed my mind. These potatoes are cheesy melt in your mouth good. I never realized that scalloped potatoes can be mighty delish. This recipe is well worth the time to make.
Scalloped Potatoes in Crockpot  #SundaySupper
To make the recipe I used 4lbs of potatoes, which is about 6 large potatoes. I made enough to feed an army, ok, well enough to feed my Husband and to have leftovers for lunch. I carefully sliced them very thin, but you could totally use a mandolin if you have one. I was too lazy to find mine so I just sliced them myself. In between each layer of potatoes I cut thin slices of onion to give some extra flavor. For the sauce I made a simple cheese sauce which is made with butter, flour, non-fat milk and just a small amount of cream. My mission was to make the creamiest potatoes ever. Mission accomplished! Just layer the potatoes and onions in the Crcokpot, pour over the cheese sauce and let it bake for about 4 hours on high and about 6 hours on low.

Scalloped Potatoes in Crockpot #SundaySupper
I served up my Scalloped Potatoes with smoked ham. This is one of those meals my Husband craves periodically and I never make it for him. Well maybe that will change? I do love these potatoes and the ham wasn’t to bad either.

Make sure you check out the #SundaySupper Crockpot recipes. I can’t wait to see what I can make next.

Have a great Sunday!

Tex Mex Chili in Crock-Pot

Hi Everyone,

I just found out that this week is National Chili week and by surprise I actually made a big batch of chili. I love when these kind of coincidences happen. This chili is the kind fo chili that will warm you heart and soul.
Tex Mex Chili in Crock-Pot
My chili is thick, hearty and has a great smoky flavor. I made it on Saturday night in my new Crock-Pot and when I woke up my chili was ready for me. Now I didn’t eat my chili for breakfast, but I did make it for my Monday night dinner. Chili is amazing when it sits for a day because the flavors really come together.
Tex Mex Chili in Crockpot
The Tex Mex Chili is made with ground beef, black beans, corn onion, green chili’s, Anaheim peppers, jalapeno and chipolte in Adobo Sauce. I thought it would be really spicy but it’s not, it’s simply perfect for the chili lover in your life. The chili has the kind of constancy of the chili you would top on hot dogs.
Tex Mex Chili in Crockpot
To make my chili I used my brand new Crock-Pot® Smart Slow Cooker is WeMo® enabled. This Crock-Pot is amazing! It has its own app on it so I can control my Crock-Pot from my phone. If I am running late, I can just set my Crock-Pot to warm. Plus I can also use the timer button on my app to start my Crock-Pot when I needed to or set the timer for when I wanted it to finish. I thought that was the coolest thing. What will technology come up with next? If you don’t happen to have a smart phone you can also manually control the buttons by a simple touch of a button You have 4 settings, off, high, low and warm. I highly recommend the Crock-Pot® Smart Slow Cooker is WeMo® enabled.
