HOLLYSNOWWOMAN: Great idea! Thanks. emoticon

Cooking beans in the crockpot -- which is the cheapest and best way to do them -- and then freezing them with veggies for soup later. That is the secret to good soup for one. (And it includes beans, which we're always suppoed to eat.)

I use my crock pot to cook beans and then I take them and put in the freezer. I like to throw whatever veggies I have on hand, take some beans out of the freezer and make soups. Cooking for one I have a hard time eating different veggies so soup is a good thing.

Slow but will get there!

The latest experiment:

one package boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut in one to two inch pieces
1 medium onion, chopped,
1/2 cup shredded carrots
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 can rotel chiles and tomatoes
1 can niblets corn
I can low sodium black beans
1 can low sodium pinto beans (or any other beans)
1/2 cup chopped or sliced black olives
1-2 teaspoons chile powder (to taste)

Brown chicken with onions; throw everything in the crock pot... serve with tortillas, or corn bread, or polenta, or a smile! It keeps well, gets better each day, freezes well..... and is wide open for innovation and transformation!

Be a voice, not an echo!

I fixed the Slo-Cooker Pork Chop. It was a hit!

However, I wonder if I could use another mix than the Ranch? Although I loved it, I have IBS. Need I say more???

soup is very forgiving: use broth and any vegetables or bits of meat.
Just keep adding to a container of leftovers in your freezer and toss it into a cup or two of broth when it is full. Make sure you have sufficient seasoning.
Voila: instant soup!

Just use a 4 qt instead of larger pot, and reduce the size of the recipe you are preparing - or make the full recipe and freeze in portion sizes so all you have to do is heat it.
