[livejournal.com profile] askingxalice was asking~ (hurr) for the recipe for that Mexican Chicken Stew I made that was really good. It's in a book called The Complete Idiot's Guide to Slow Cooker Cooking, and it's delicious:

Mexican Chicken Stew

Prep time: >15 minutes
Minimum cooking time: 4 hours
Makes 4 servings


1 TB vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
1 large onion, peeled and diced
3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1/2 green bell pepper, seeds and ribs removed, finely chopped
1 TB chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cup refridgerated commercial tomato salsa
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (15 oz) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
salt and black pepper to taste
cooked white or brown rice

Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat; add onion, garlic, and green bell pepper. Cook and stir for 3 minutes for until onion is transclucent. Stir in chili powder and cumin. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Scrape the mixture into the slow cooker. Add chicken (uncooked), salsa, tomato sauce, and kidney beans. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or on high for 2 to 3 hours. Season with salt and pepper, and serve over rice.

There ARE. Even after you guys picked out a bunch of recipes for me, I went through the entire thing (and used a whole pad of Post-Its that were cut in half lengthwise) and marked a LOT more. SO good for winter :D

It was sooo good (and is what prompted Emmy to call me "the bestest stew-cooker EVER"). Note that it's a stew, though, not like...rice-topper, so unless you add a BUNCH of rice and mix it up, it's going to be kinda thin except for the chicken chunks.
