3 Crockpot Recipes

I have been asked to share a couple of recent crockpot recipes i've tried recently. So here they are! Warning: The first two recipes are probably enough to serve 6 or more. Our family of 3 had too much leftovers to even consume the next day. The last one is so simple and easy and I thought it went great with mashed potatoes. Enjoy!

Chicken Taco Soup

2 cans chili beans
2 cans black beans (I used pinto & white beans)
2 cans stewed tomatoes
2 cans mexican tyle tomatoes
2 cans corn (I used half a bag of frozen corn)
1.5 lbs chicken breast
2 packs ranch dressing mix
2 packs taco seasoning

Mix everything together in crockpot and cook on low for 6 hours. Shred chicken and return to crockpot for two more hours. Serve with tortilla ships, shredded cheese and sour cream.

Chicken Stew

2lb skinless chicken breasts cut in 1 inch cubes
2 cans fat-free chicken broth
3 cup potatoes; peeled and cubed
1 cup onion; chopped
1 cup carrots; sliced thin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp pepepr
1/2 tsp rubbed sage
1/2 tsp dried thyme
6 oz no-salt-added tomato paste

1/4 cup cold water
3 tbsp cornstarch

In your crockpot, combine the first 11 ingredients; cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. A half hour before serving, mix water and cornstarch until smooth; stir into stew. Cook, covered, 30 minutes more on high or until the vegetables are tender.

Sour Cream and Onion Chicken

4 chicken breast halves
1 12-oz can of low fat cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
1 1/2 cups water
1 packet of onion soup mix

Place chicken into crock pot or slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mix all the other ingredients together. Pour mixture over chicken and cover. Cook at low setting 6-8 hours or higher setting for 4-6 hours. This is the easiest meal to put together! It's very creamy and goes well with wild rice or potatoes.
