WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

BEAN AND SALSA TURKEY CHILI

1 tbsp canola oil
1/2 lb ground turkey*
1 can (28-oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 jar (16-oz) chunky salsa
1 can (15-oz) black beans
1 can (15-oz) kidney beans
1 can (15-oz) chili beans
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
shredded cheddar cheese for topping

Heat canola oil in a medium skillet, add turkey and cook over medium-high heat until no longer pink.  This will probably take about 10 minutes.  Stir occasionally during the cooking process.

Transfer the turkey to a crockpot or slow cooker and add the tomatoes, salsa, black beans, kidney beans, chili beans, chili powder, and cumin.  Stir to blend well.

Place lid on cooker and cook on high setting 3 to 4 hours or on low setting approximately 6 hours.

To serve, ladle into individual bowls and top with cheddar cheese as desired.

*Be aware if buying the ground turkey (or chicken).  Read the label and be sure mixture does not contain skin which really ups the fat in the meat.
