My friend Cate has a slow cooker. We’ve had chili and ribs with great slow cooking success while watching movies like Sound of Music and Love Actually.
I went to Target this weekend for some home improvement things and I saw an aisle with crock pots, so I decided to get one. Then I went to Barnes and Nobles and got the Crock-Pot Slow Cooker Bible, because I like cook books (sshhh, that’s a secret).
When I got home I decided to try out a recipe, I chose the Chicken and Beans Chili as a guide, and gathered all the ingredients I could find along with some substitues. The end result was more a stew than a chili, so here is the Chicken and Beans Stew.
I had no chili powder, so I used 2 tsp. Red Pepper and 1 tsp. Black Pepper. 2 tsp Ground Cumin, left over salsa, 3 cloves of garlic and a small onion.
I chopped the tomates up into eights each, and chopped some chicken thighs into 1 inch pieces (no bones or skin included).
then you basically dump everything in …
and mix it around until it the chicken is coated.
Plug it in.
Leave it on high, for about 2 hours.
Then throw in some beans and let it cook for 10 more minutes.
After it’s done you’ll have a lovely chicken and bean stew concoction, that, according to my pesky brother, tastes great!

I think I have almost that same exact crockpot! I got it from Target also! hahaha. Yummmmmmmm to your stew!
I ❤ crockpots! Was it stew-like because it was wet? Or are you saying that it was really thick? I've had both wet and thick stew, so I don't know what you mean. Looks yummy!,
It was wet. I’m not sure what you mean by “thick” stew? Is that like gravy that you pour over potatoes?
