Delicious and Easy Crockpot Meals
So my partner and I have been on a diet recently and it’s getting to that point where I am tired of making my food for every meal. I had class tonight so I did not want to come home and take 30 minutes to prepare dinner for ourselves. This is where this great recipe come in!
I go to school for at least 6 hours two days out of the week and I just don’t have it in me to create a healthy, calorie-counted, delicious perfect meal. This one day I was okay with throwing things in the crockpot and hoping they come out for the better.
Here’s what I used:
- 3 Chicken Breast
- 2 15oz cans on tomato sauce (low sodium/no added salt)
- 2 15oz cans of black beans (use whatever beans you have on hand)
- 2 cups of broth
- 1 medium onion, yellow
- 2 celery stalks
- 3 carrots
- 1 teaspoon of garlic, minced
I threw this in the crockpot on low for 7 hours and it turned out amazing. I typically top my chili with cheese, avocado, raw onions, and sour cream with a little bit of hot sauce.
TIP* Don’t be afraid to add something that you typically wouldn’t add to your chili. It’s always about trial and error when trying out new dishes.
If you wanted to make this vegan/vegetarian you can add more beans instead of the chicken and use squash or sweet potato. I always like to add my veggies to my chili but I also LOVE my vegetables.
My chili seasoning:
- 2 T chili powder
- 1 t garlic powder
- 1 t onion powder
- 1 t dried oregano
- 3 t of cumin
- 1 t of paprika
For those who like it spicy add:
- 1 t cayenne pepper
- 1 t crush red pepper flakes
