    OK, my turn -- I just made these tasty vegetarian Chili Beans (makes 8 - 8oz servings)

    I'd love to hear some thoughts on something that I could substitute for all or some of the added salt, if anyone would care to offer guidance... (thanks!) The 2tsp of salt in this recipe adds 590mg of sodium to each 8-oz serving; it'd be great to drop that number by at least half !!!

    lfx9tqa4xd30.png


    375 g pinto beans, dry (no need to pre-soak, but wash and pick-through, of course)
    2 tablespoons cumin
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    2 teaspoons paprika
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon oregano
    2 teaspoons salt
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 large onion, diced
    1 medium tomato, diced
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    38oz (1125ml) clean water

    DIRECTIONS:
    1. Add the olive oil to the slow-cooker
    2. Add the beans and the dry spices and stir, coating the beans with spices.
    3. Add the rest of the stuff, stirring as you go.
    4. Add the water over and cover
    5. Cook on high for 6 hours (at lower altitude, 5hrs may be sufficient - test beans for tenderness)

    Make this better. Skip the salt all together, adjust for seasoning (S&P) after the dish is cooked. Dont use water but no sodium chicken/beef stock. Skip the oil, not needed in a slow cooker at all.

    I had planned to just "go without" the salt next time around on these, but I'd not considered cooking the beans in anything other than water (habits, I guess) -- Thanks @crazyravr , I'll give your thoughts a try (of course, choice of stock imacts the vegitarian nature of these, but I'm NOT vegan by any stretch of the imagination either!) ... Again, thanks for a push in the right direction.

    @simonkimberlin , Your chicken sounds delicious -- How'd it turn out?

    Lately I've been on a burrito/taco kick.

    Last week I put a bunch of chicken breasts in the crock pot with red chile sauce and spices. Made a weeks worth of flat out wrap whole grain burritos.

    Yesterday I put a chuck roast in with tomatoes and green chile sauce. Just pulled it apart. OH MY. I'm going to roll a bunch of beef, cheese, chile, cilantro, refried bean burritos and freeze them for the upcoming week. So filling, and so yummy, and with the flatout whole grain or flatout light wraps not bad calories wise either.

    Bump! Lasagna cooking in the slow cooker right now. It's going to be a busy week, but I'll share some recipes when I get time.

    Made this today

    http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/slow-cooker-corned-beef-with-cabbage-carrots-and-potatoes

    The times were WAY off though. My meat was done in 4 hours (granted, it was 4 lbs, not 6). So tasty though.

    I have been making this for years. Yummy.
    Brown pork chops. Salt and pepper
    Put in crockpot. Add 1-2 sliced green peppers, 1/2 chopped onion, 1-2 cans whole tomatoes. Cook all day and serve on rice. I have also served on cottage cheese during my Adkins days. Sounds gross but it isn't.
