This is a go to meal here. Chicken, salsa, green chilies.

Turns into taco, enchiladas, rice and bean bowls, tortilla soup.... Sooo good.

Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

My favorite thing I use the crock pot for is a perpetual pot of bone broth. It makes it SO easy to have this nutritious food on hand at all times. It will help keep your family from getting sick. To make bone broth...

Add bones, whatever you have on hand, chicken, beef, turkey, goat, rabbit, duck, it doesn't matter! If you have access to the feet, head, and necks, it will make your broth even more nutritious, (sounds awful, I know, but I promise, you'll love the flavor and health benefits of it.)

I like to use these basic additions but you don't have to, just bones and sea salt is enough!

Carrots, Celery, Onion, Garlic, Thyme, Bay Leaf, Rosemary

I also like to add a dash of raw organic apple cider vinegar as the acid helps to draw out the minerals of the bones

For a extra boost, I throw in a turmeric root. Turmeric has so many health boosting qualities, anti inflammatory being just one.

Don't put any greens into your bone broth, save those for the actual soup, they will make the broth bitter.

Let it cook at a low simmer for 24 hours, take some off and then add more water and do another batch, you can use chicken bones about three times and beef bones 10! You don't have to throw them away after the first use.

Oh Yeah! I make broth ALL the time and then pressure can it so I have it on hand for cooking... homemade chicken broth is awesome in mashed potatoes!

Chili! The sweet and savory come through so nicely when cooking in the beans all day

Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

the simplest thing I do with the crockpot, and sizes can be adjusted, is cooking sweet and spicy Italian sausages in tomato sauce.

I throw in some olive oil, some Italian seasoning spice mix, some whole garlic cloves and warm that all up, then I mix in tomato paste and tomato sauce. This sauce is a thick enough it can be used for dipping in bread, of if you choose to put the sausage in a bun of some kind you can use the sauce as the condiment. You can adjust how spicy things are by adjusting how many cloves of garlic you put in. You can further mix things up by adding homemade meat balls and have sausage and meatball sandwiches! If you have left over sausages and/or meatballs you can then chop them up, use some of the sauce and mix it all up with some noodles for another dinner! It's one of the easiest meals ever.
