Slow Cooked White Chicken Chili

In the world of chili, beef gets most of the attention. It’s the most common foundation for a chili recipe, but what happens when you have chicken on hand and not beef? Or if you’re tired of beef and want something different? Chicken chili anyone? Even though I’ve never entered a chili cookoff I consider…

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

The great thing about this recipe – well, one of the great things – is that you don’t have to spend all day over a hot stove to get amazing flavor at dinner time. Prep all your veggies, toss the ingredients in your slow cooker, and let the machine do the work all day long…

Slow Cooked Cauliflower Chicken Chowder

You’ve probably never had a chowder with cauliflower. In fact, if you’ve had chowder, you’ve almost certainly had it with potatoes. Just like when I make mashed cauliflower, the cauliflower in this recipe is a stand-in for the much more carbohydrate-laden potato. The texture is almost identical and with all the other warm and yummy…

Slow Cooker Carne Asada Tacos

If you’ve ever been to an authentic Mexican restaurant, you know that the list of possible ingredients for tacos is practically endless. There are your standards: pork, beef (ground or shredded), bean, chicken, or fish. And there are your more exotic: tongue…eh, let’s not list the rest of the exotic ones. Not too appetizing, if…

Slow Cooker Spicy Pork with Sweet Potato and Squash

And this is one of my favorite recipes for the slow cooker: Slow Cooked Spicy Pork with Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash. I love pork and I don’t make it half as much as I should. I find cooking pork in the oven is a tricky thing – it’s either raw or dry and there’s…

Slow Cooker Italian Sausage Soup

So today when I’m not feeling so hot, my first thought is always chicken soup. But I call this slow cooker Italian sausage soup my “postmodern chicken soup” because it is chicken soup, kicked up about ten levels. A big part of my grandma’s chicken soup was noodles. Of course, I eat Paleo, so drop…

Spicy Texas Slow Cooker Chili

If you’ve read even a few of my recipes, by now you know why I love honey over regular white or brown sugar. But in case you’re a newbie, let me introduce you to your new sweetener: honey. Go with the raw, organic kind and you’ll not only be getting a seriously sweet sweetener, but…

Slow Cooker Beef and Cabbage Stew

Summer is my favorite season. I like it hot. Really hot. But I don’t exactly live in a climate that gives me summer year round – or even most of the year. I live in a place where fall comes suddenly and before you know it, the days are darker than they were and you…
