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.

3-BEAN TURKEY SOUP

1 lb ground turkey
1 cup chopped onion
1 medium bell pepper, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can (16-oz) red kidney beans, drained
1 can (16-oz) Great Northern beans, drained
1 can (16-oz) black beans, drained
3 cups water
2 cans, whole tomatoes, undrained, chopped
1 can (8-oz) tomato sauce
2 cups sliced carrots
2 tsp dried oregano leaves
1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves
1/2 tsp chicken-flavored bouillon granules
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

In a large skillet, cook turkey, onion, bell pepper, and garlic until turkey is no longer pink. Drain off any fat.
Transfer mixture to  a crock pot/slow cooker. Add the beans, water, tomatoes, tomato sauce, carrots, spices and bouillon. Place lid on cooker and cook on low 8 to 10 hours or on high 4 to 5 hours.

Before serving, mash beans slightly to make a thicker soup. Garnish, if desired.

Yield: 10
