2 cans diced tomatoes OR 1 can diced tomatoes and 1 can diced tomatoes with green chile.


1. Dice up the sausage.
2. Dump the meat, beans, and tomatoes into the crock pot.
3. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-6.
4. Serve over rice and with a slice of cornbread.

Couldn't be easier! If you use the andouille sausage, you will not want for any extra spices and seasonings. Promise!

Crockpot Chipotle Chicken

Sadly, I did not get a photo worthy of posting for this delicious chicken dish I created. But I promise you its super tasty with a little bit of kick. Enjoy!


3-4 chicken breasts
1 can green chilis
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce**
1 tsp adobo sauce
1/2 onion chopped
1/2 cup salsa

**You can find green chili and the chipotles in adobo sauce in the mexican food aisle where you get your taco ingredients.


Place the chipotle pepper, onions and salsa in a food processor and chop/blend for about ten seconds. Next, place everything on the ingredient list in the pot and turn on low for 6 hours. Take the chicken out and shred or cut into pieces. We used the chicken in a taco salad and it was DELICIOUS!

Save the juices that the chicken cooked in and you can use it for another dish later in the week. I'll post the dish I make later with it which includes ground meat, rice, corn, black beans & cheese!

Chicken Stew Recipe

After receiving a recipe for chicken stew from a friend (Hi Tiffany!) that called for a homemade roux - my worst enemy - I decided to create my own recipe. This one calls for a lot of ready made items that can help you make this slow cooked oldie a fast and easy goodie.


1 rotissere chicken - meat pulled off bone
2 packets of Louisiana Cajun brown gravy mix
1 32 oz carton chicken broth
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 soup cans full of water
1 8oz can diced stewed tomatoes (or something of the like, even rotel will do)
1 bag frozen seasoning mix (with the onions, bell pepper, celery)
salt & garlic powder
1 palm full of dried parsley
1 tbsp canola or vegetable oil

Heat oil in your dutch oven or large pot. Saute frozen seasoning mix until onions get brown on edges. Toss in the chicken and can of tomatoes, mix well. Next add the chicken broth and 2 packets of cajun gravy mix and bring to an easy boil.

In a separate bowl, mix the two cans of soup and two cans of water. Once the mixture in the pot starts to thicken up, add the soup mixture and stir all ingredients in pot well. At this point take a spoon to taste whether or not you would like to add salt. Add the dried parsley and a light layer of garlic powder to the stew and stir well.

Turn the pot on low and let simmer. In the meantime, get yourself a pot of rice going and by the time its done, your chicken stew will be too!

Way too easy, right? It really is... and its delicious! Enjoy. :)
