POTATO DOUP IN THE SLOW COOKER
I had this soup today at friends, and we all liked it a lot.
Can use turkey bacon instead of the bacon bits
Over medium high heat, melt butter in a pan and saute onions and garlic until translucent, about 2 minutes
Arrange potatoes in a slow cooker and pour broth over it
Add cooked onions and garlic with cayenne and salt and pepper to taste. Stir to mix
Cover and cook over low heat for 6-8 hours or until potatoes are tender
Smash the potatoes, puree or use a stick blender to break down the potatoes to thicken the soup to your liking
Add cream cheese cubes and stir to combine
Cook on high for 30 minutes or until cheese melts. Whisk any leftover bits if needed
Dish and serve hot topped with bacon bits, cheddar cheese and dill weed/chives/green onions

Scrumptious Crock Pot Beef Stew - Best ever!

This is the best beef stew I've ever made in the slow cooker.
Notes!
1. I put a little less than 1/4 cup dry onion soup recipe mix because of the high sodium
2. Please read the whole recipe before making this. Thank you
3. I used 6 quarts slow cooker
4. I'm sure it can freeze well
5. mine is in the slow cooker for 11 hours. The first hour is always on high heat.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup cubed white potatoes ( I used bout 15 small red potatoes, the ones that don't need peeling, just washing very well)
1 cup (about 20) baby carrots (I also added regular carrots, peeled and sliced thick)1 large 1large onion, quartered and cut into fairly large sections
1 cup diced celery
8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
1 1/2 pounds lean beef cubes for stew
1/4 cup dry onion soup recipe mix
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) fat free beef broth
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) reduced-fat, reduced sodium cream of mushroom soup
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with juice
1/2 cup frozen green peas
3 tablespoons cornstarch

DIRECTIONS

Peel the potatoes, if desired, and cut into roughly 1/2 inch cubes. Place evenly in bottom of slow-cooker pot.
Scatter onions and carrots over potatoes. Cut celery into roughly 1/2 inch pieces, and add to pot..
Add remaining ingredients, except for peas and cornstarch, in order listed. (DO NOT STIR)
Cover pot and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, or until meat is fork tender.

Remove lid and stir stew well.
Rinse frozen peas with warm tap water to defrost slightly, and add to pot.
Mix cornstarch with 3 tablespoons of water in a small jar that has a lid. Cover and shake to combine well.
Add half of the cornstarch mixture to stew gradually, stirring gently but well.
Add remaining cornstarch as needed to reach desired consistency.
Serve at once.

Enjoy

CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP IN THE SLOW COOKER

This no-fuss Mexican recipe is easy to make, flavorful and filling. Let your slow-cooker do the work. Plus, it’s a great source of lean protein and fiber – and a hit with the kids!

Ingredients

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound total)
2 15-oz cans diced salt-free tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano, undrained
1 can chopped mild green chilies, drained
1 15-oz can no-salt added black beans, drained
1 ½ cups frozen corn
1 yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cups sodium-free chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
4 corn tortillas, sliced into ¼ inch strips
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
½ cup shredded low-fat Monterey Jack cheese (about 1 tablespoon per serving)
Lime wedges

Preparation

1. Place chicken in slow-cooker. Combine tomatoes, chilies, black beans, corn, onion, garlic, cumin and chicken broth in a bowl.
2. Pour mixture over chicken. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours until chicken is tender.
3. Remove chicken from slow-cooker and shred with 2 forks. Return to slow-cooker. Adjust seasonings, adding more broth if necessary.
4. Just before serving, add tortillas and cilantro to slow-cooker. Stir to blend.
5. Serve in soup bowls, topping each serving with cheese and a squeeze of lime juice

Tomorrow I'll make this recipe, but instead of still cut oats I'll use wheat berries.
I like wheat berries even more than still cut oats. I'll use vanilla soy milk.

It worked for me, so I'm sharing my experience.
When I eat this dinner, I eat the heavier meal at lunch time.

New dinner:
1 cup fage fat-free Greek yogurt, plain
Cooked Quinoa
Large salad with dressing (see below)

Plus a large bowl of salad on the side (tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, red pepper, green pepper, daikon, red onion - any FREE vegetables
Dressing for the salad: lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste and couple of teaspoons olive oil

***Did you know that Quinoa is full Protein?
The yogurt also very high in Protein
You get the good fat from the olive oil
You get the good carbs from the Quinoa

How to cook the Quinoa in the slow cooker?
You may want to cook only half of the recipe, so you know if you like it or not

Ingredients
1 cup white Quinoa - RINSE VERY WELL (because the bitter coat of Saponin)
3 cups water
3 sticks of cinnamon
Stevia to taste
2 apples, peeled, cored diced
2 pears, peeled, cored, diced
A handful of dried cranberries or raisins (I like cranberries better)

Directions
Put all ingredients in the slow cooker on HIGH. Do not leave the house.
Check after 1 hour and continue to check if there is enough water.
It is ready when the Quinoa is cooked and it is moist with hardly any water.
*** It can burn very easily, so please watch often. It should take around 2 hours , more or less......

Cool and refrigerate

When you are ready to eat this dinner, combine the yogurt and the quinoa. Add more Stevia, if needed Sprinkle with cinnamon
Enjoy also your salad.

FARRO SALAD

I bought in the grocery store the faro salad in the salad bar.
Amazing!
The best ingredient was small pieces of DREID APPLES. So Yummy.
The recipe in the link below resemble the one I had. Mine had fewer ingredients. I'll ask to give me the ingredient's list of the faro salad. I hope they will.

BEEF POT ROAST
8 servings
By Sandra Lee
From her cookbook Semi-Homemade, Fast-Fix Family Favorites, page 224

I've made this recipe yesterday and it was amazing!
The best Beef Pot Roast I've ever made or ate.
Great for company
Very easy to make
Can be frozen for later use

INGREDIENTS

1 bag (12- ounce) frozen onions (I used 1 large FRESH onion, chopped)
1 bag (8-ounce) frozen carrot slices (I used about 8 FRESH carrots, peeled and sliced)
4 pounds beef chuck roast
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, "Wesson"
1 can (10.75 - ounce) condensed cream of celery soup, "Cambell's" (I used healthy choice)
1 packet (1-ounce) onion soup mix, Lipton
1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth, "Swanson"
1/4 cup steak sauce, "A1 steack sauce"

DIRECTIONS

1. In a 4-to 5-quart slow cooker (I used 6 quarts slow cooker), combine frozen onions and carrots.
2.Season roast with salt and pepper. In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook roast in hot oil over medium-high heat until brown on all sides. Place in slow cooker on top of onions and carrots.
3. In a medium bowl, stir together cream of celery soup, onion soup mix, beef broth, and steak sauce. Pour over top of roast.
4. Cover and cook on high heat setting for 3 to 4 hours OR low heat setting for 8 to 9 hours (I cooked the first hour on HIGH setting, and then continued with low setting for 8 more hours (or more...) untill the meat was really soft.

POTATO SOUP - CROCK POT
By CURLY19585

Ingredients

1 packet McCormick Peppered Country Gravy Mix

1/2 bag of Frozen Southern Style Hash Browns (Giant Eagle)

32 oz Chicken Broth (Giant Eagle)

1 Cup Green Giant Corn - Frozen

1/4 Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Mexican Cheese (to garnish bowl)

Instructions

Put all items (excluding cheese) into Crock Pot, set for 8 hours on low. Once ready to serve, top with a small amount of cheese.

Special Notes:

I use a liner in the crock pot for eash clean up. Today I added 3 oz of grilled chicken to the soup for lunch - it was good. This recipe was created with recipe manager - please note grilled chicken will increase the points. I would add it per bowl. Lasts me about a week with one bowl a day.

CROCK POT SLOPPY JOES
Posted by hbsweeti

I made this for dinner tonight, and it was amazing!
I got this recipe from one of the WW boards, but I don't know who to credit since I've had this recipe in my "to try" pile for a while. I modified the recipe to use ground chicken, but the original called for lean ground beef.


2 pounds ground chicken
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup ketchup
½ bell pepper, chopped
3 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons mustard
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 ½ teaspoon chili powder
Hamburger buns

In a heavy skillet, brown ground beef with onion and garlic. Drain off excess fat. Combine ketchup, bell pepper, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, and chili powder in slow cooker. Stir in ground beef mixture. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 7 to 9 hours. Serve spooned over hamburger buns.

MEXICAN CROCKPOT CHICKEN
Posted by dononna1

Tonight I made Mexican Crockpot Chicken- a recipe I got from my leader. I am so happy to have a leader who loves to cook (stuff I like!) We had a late night a church and this was perfect!


4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
1 jar of salsa (I only used about 1 cup)
1 can of black beans (I drained mine)
1 can of corn drained

Put in crockpot- in order
Cook on low 6 hours (It only took mine 4 hours)
Makes 4 generous servings @ 4 points each.

I cooked some brown rice in the microwave and dinner was ready within 10 minutes of arriving home. Am thinking about using leftovers with tortillas to make burritos tomorrow for lunch!

Will def make this again- probably will double the recipe when school starts back up, so I can freeze leftovers and have for easy lunches.

Creamy Crockpot Chicken
Posted by cuppaco

My mom used to make this 15 years ago when she was on WW. I remember it being a family favorite. I "rediscovered" this recipe when my mom found her old WW stuff and sent me the recipe. I revamped it a little bit by switching the canola oil for the called for vegetable oil.

Serves 6
Approx. Nutrition Information (NI): 255/11/1 per serving (calories/fat/fiber)

Ingredients:
2.5 lbs boneless/skinless chicken breasts
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 can reduced-fat cream of mushroom soup
8 oz 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, chive & onion flavor
1/2 cup 99% fat free chicken broth
1 envelope Good Seasons Italian dressing mix
8 oz package sliced fresh mushrooms

DIRECTIONS:
1. Cook chicken, in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side or just until browned. Transfer chicken to a crockpot, reserving drippings in skillet.

2. Add soup, cream cheese, chicken broth, and Italian dressing mix to hot drippings in skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted and mixture is smooth.

3. Arrange mushrooms over chicken in crockpot. Spoon soup mixture over mushrooms. Cover and cook on LOW 4 hours. Stir well before serving.

To make ahead or store leftovers: Prepare recipe as directed. Transfer to a 13- x 9-inch baking dish, and let cool completely. Freeze up to one month. Thaw in refrigerator 8 to 24 hours. To reheat, cover tightly with aluminum foil, and bake at 325° for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Crockport recipe
Posted by LAURIHARDING

Got this recipe from this board a few weeks ago:
1 can cranberry sauce
1 cup FF catalina
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
I used enough sliced boneless, skinless chicken breasts and thighs so it is covered by the sauce.
Mixed everything but the chicken in the crockpot added chicken last and set on low.

I think I'm going to add brocolli at the end of cooking time and serve over couscous.
It is smelling real good right now!

1 (14.5 oz) can tomatoes w/ green chilies, undrained
14 oz. can Fiesta corn, undrained
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
Garlic to taste

Slice the sausage into small pieces. Add all ingredients to 3 quart slow cooker and stir to combine. Cook on high 3-4 hours or on low for up to 10 hours. Could be served over rice.
Yield: 5 servings (1 ½ cups) = 288 calories; 4g fat (12.3% calories from fat); 17g protein; 44g carbohydrate; 11g dietary fiber, 18mg cholesterol; 1453mg sodium. Exchanges 1 ½ grain (starch); ½ lean meat, ½ vegetable, 0 fat.

Notes:
drain the juice from one of the cans of black beans into the crockpot before rinsing all the black beans.
