    Re: Crockpot recipes

    I use the crockpot to cook dried beans too. I just soak the beans in a pan of water over night and next morning, drain and rinse. Then pour the beans in the crockpot, cover them with water, add salt and pepper to taste, turn on high and cook all day.

    We like these two soup recipes, one is from The Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook the other from The Tennessee Cooperator

    Brown Jug Soup

    1 10 1/2-oz. can chicken broth
    4 chicken bouillion cubes
    1 qt. water
    2 cups diced celery
    2 cups diced onion
    4 cups diced potatoes
    3 cups diced carrots
    1 can whole corn
    2 10 3/4-oz. cans of cream of chicken soup
    1/2 lb. Velveeta cheese, cubed
    ( I add 2 cooked and chopped chicken breast)

    Combine all ingredients except cheese in slow cooker.
    Cover. Cook on low 10-12 hours, or until vegetables are tender.
    Just before serving, add cheese. Stir until cheese is melted.

    Santa Fe Soup

    2 lbs. ground beef cooked and drained
    1 pkg. taco seasoning
    1 pkg. ranch dressing mix
    1 15oz. can pinto beans
    1 15oz. can black beans
    1 15oz. can kidney beans
    2 11oz. cans shoepeg corn
    1 10oz. can Rotel tomatoes
    1 14oz. can diced tomatoes
    2 cups water
    1 onion chopped
    ( I add 1 cup chopped celery)

    Brown ground beef and drain. Place in slow-cooker.
    Mix taco and ranch dressing mixes with beef; add remaining ingredients, including liquid from the canned beans and tomatoes. Stir to mix.
    Cook on low 10- 12 hours.

    Wow that sounds so easy and delicious, hepcat. I'll have to try making those barbecued beans. Would be great for a cookout!

    Inthegarden. I have that same recipe, except we call it santa fe stew and I use either cubed pork (from boneless chops) or cubed chicken breast (add both raw, no need to prebrown). We love it. It's a go to family favorite.

    I'll have to try it with the pork or chicken. That would be good. Thanks.

    I do chicken and shrimp jambalaya in the crockpot.

    1 lb chicken breasts, cut into 1" pieces
    2-3 stalks celery, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    2 onions, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    1/2 tsp oregano
    1/2 tsp basil
    1 Tbs sugar
    28 oz. can crushed tomatoes, undrained
    1 lb frozen cooked shrimp, thaw before use
    Add cayenne pepper to taste.

    Cook everything except shrimp on low for about 8 hours. Increase to high and add shrimp. Cook for about another 30 minutes or until shrimp is tender.

    Serve over rice.

    Re: Crockpot recipes

    Has anyone ever cooked pasta in the crockpot? We're moving next Saturday and a few of my son's soccer teammates will be helping us move. The gas for the stove won't be turned on until 2 days later but I want to be able to feed these kids that are helping us. They've always raved over my tortellini soup in the past so I thought I would make a pot of that for them in the crockpot but I don't know how it would work without being able to cook the tortellini first. There's other things I can make, but I'm curious if pasta can be cooked this way.

    Yes it can, but add the tortellini last. It takes about 20-30 min. on high to cook the pasta.

    Re: Crockpot recipes

    Still cookin' beans for the week. I don't think I pre-soaked them long enough. Usually I soak them overnight, but this time I only soaked them 3 hours. I didn't feel like a meat base, so I used a can of tomato soup, a large dash of barbeque sauce, and a little salsa. Onions. Really good flavor, but it's a 7 bean mix and the larger beans are just a little tough.
    Count your blessings!
