Chicken Chile Verde – Crockpot or Not

My Chicken Chile Verde is a delicious, easy slow cooker recipe. It is extremely low in fat and extremely high in taste. I make it in the slow cooker, but there is no reason it could not be simmered on the stove. (I also think using the meat from a supermarket rotisserie chicken would be […]

Black Beans & Rice

Delicious. Nutritious. Easy. Serve the beans over basmati or long-grained rice. The beans are just a little spicy. Of course, you can cook the beans in a pot on the stove if you don’t have a crockpot. 1 lb. dried black beans 1 quart vegetable or chicken stock 1 16 oz. tub spicy salsa from […]

Santa Fe Chowder

This thick chicken, potato, corn and green chili chowder is popular in the Albuquerque and Santa Fe area, especially in winter. My version works best in the crockpot (but can be prepared on the stove top) and there are several options for finishing and serving the soup. Go ahead and add a diced jalapeno to […]

Salsa Chicken Chili

Place a few ingredients in the slow cooker and go about your day – a healthy (under 300 calorie) satisfying stew will be waiting. This will serve six people, but could be stretched a bit by adding an additional can of beans. 1 cup minced onion 2-3 cloves garlic, minced 1 red bell pepper, chopped […]

Fat-Free Carrot Lentil Soup

Spend ten minutes in the morning, and come home to a healthy, hot meal. Salt causes a longer cooking time, so add salt to taste just before serving and consider a […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Too easy to believe – yet very satisfying and good for you. Serve over hot pasta – spaghetti is traditional – for a busy-day dinner. I most-often use boneless, skinless, chicken breast halves. You can use frozen chicken breasts in this recipe – no need to thaw. (Of course, this dish can also be made […]

RV Beef Barbacoa Tacos (Crockpot)

I’m putting this out front: in no way is this recipe authentic. Barbacoa is a dish requiring an entire critter to be roasted in an underground pit. Depending upon the region of Mexico, the critter could be a cow, a goat, a sheep or even a pig. This dish, translated by a RV cook, requires […]

BBQ Pulled Beef Sandwich (Crockpot)

Three ingredients, RV easy! Granted one of the ingredients is a jar of BBQ sauce, so choose a good one and not a bottle containing junky high fructose corn syrup. These sandwiches are great with coleslaw and even better with coleslaw in the sandwich. 2 cups minced yellow onion (about half a large onion) 2.5 […]
