Chicken, sausage and white bean chili

I am on a mission to create a vast repertoire of crockpot recipes that we truly enjoy. Trying to cook something from scratch every night hasn’t been working for us for a long, long time. Probably since the middle of my pregnancy. There have been too many nights of frozen pizza, meager leftovers, and fend-for-yourself. Sparks works hard and deserves some food at the end of the day. The crockpot, which cooks enough of anything to feed us for three meals, is the answer.


Here is today’s experiment. Chicken, sausage, and white bean chili. It’s the first hit when you google for those words and I don’t see how it could fail–it’s flavored with onion, garlic, cumin, chili, and tomatoes. Sounds like a slam-dunk. We also really liked chicken breasts with onion, salsa, and taco seasoning. That made great tacos. We were less excited about crockpot chicken curry (curry just needs to be fried in a pan, end of story) and crockpot beef stroganoff (the beef fell apart, leaving us with a tasty but nasty-looking brown mess).

Do you have any suggestions?

And to bring a smile to your face, here’s some footage of our walking monkey. I give her credit for walking at 14 months because she was taking a couple of steps at a time. Now she’ll go all the way across the room. Go Mimi!

  1. I like using the slow cooker for big hunks of meat, beef roast, a turkey breast, a whole chicken and then using the cooked meat in a bunch of other meals, sandwiches, salads, casseroles.

  2. The chicken sausage chili looks pretty good. Little Mimi is adorable and she is coming right along with her walking. Hugs
