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.

HEALTHY CHUNKY VEGETABLE CHILI

2 cans (15-oz each) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen corn
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 celery ribs, diced
1 can (6-oz) tomato paste
1 can (4-oz) diced mild green chilies, undrained
1 large carrot, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1 cup water

In a slow cooker or crockpot combine the beans, corn, onion, celery, green chilies, carrot, garlic, chili powder, oregano, salt, and tomato paste.  Stir to combine well.  Add the water and stir in.  Place lid on cooker, turn setting to low and cook approximately 6 hours.

This is a healthy dish.  Serve with an assortment of whole-grain crackers to keep it healthy.
