    Simple recipes.

    I enjoy cooking... but sometimes you come across some simple recipes that everyone in the house loves.

    I'll share one with ya'll. It's a spanish type Chicken dish using your crockpot. Prep time is dick all, the results fantastic.

    Required:

    - Crockpot.
    - 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts.
    - 2 cans corn kernels.
    - 2 cans black beans.
    - 2 cups salsa. (Hot for the win).
    - Salt/pepper.
    - Cayenne powder.
    - 1 cup shredded cheese of your choice, jalapeno jack works well.

    Method:

    - Rinse corn in collander, toss into crockpot.
    - Rinse black beans in collander, toss into crockpot.
    - Toss 1 cup salsa in.
    - Salt/pepper.
    - Cayenee powder.
    - Mix.
    - Rinse chicken breasts, toss 4 on top of the above.
    - Toss 1 cup salsa on top.
    - Putt lid on, turn crockpot to high or 400.
    - Come back in 2 1/2 hours or so to check chicken. Should be 2 1/2 - 3 hrs maximum.

    Once you have done the recipe once, it takes about 5 minutes to do, maximum.

    When it's done, you will have a fair amount of liquid in the crockpot from steam. It is not part of the dish, you will use a scoop with drainage to pull everything out.

    Remove the chicken, plate the balance on 4 plates. Chicken on top. Cheese over it... and microwave to melt cheese, not very long.

    Serve with a side of rice a roni brand spanish rice.

    It's super easy.... you don't have to watch it... and it's very tasty.

    Goes good with Dos Equis lager.

    Enjoy!

    Cost of the dish for 4.

    Chicken $4 (Costco USA chicken)
    Canned veg $2.80 (Walmart private label)
    Salsa $.50 (Whatever you have)
    Cheese $.50 (Probably costs less than this given US cheese pricing)
    Rice $1.50 (Walmart USA)

    Total $9.30 / 4 servings = $2.33 per individual.

    If you use lots of cayenne, add some hot sauce, jalapenos and hot salsa, you can definately call this
    dish "Bandito's FIRE IN THE HOLE Chicken".

    I'm thinkin' you're more a "Chef Ramsay" in the kitchen than a "Jamie Oliver"

    I like the that part with Dos Equis most of all, but will give it a try anyways.

    You could splash some XX into the crockpot if you like for added flavour.

    Give it a shot, great recipe. I've got it going right now...

    Well, will really love to try, but since we were, so far, doing cooking the old-fashioned way, I don't have a choice and get myself a crockpot. I mean this could be a way to go, as long as you have recipes for it.

    BTW, how would Negra Modelo go with that dish??

    Crockpot is a must have in the kitchen.

    Negra Modelo? It's all good. In the time it takes to cook you can have 6 or 8 of that or XX and it's all fantastic when done.

    Your wife will think you have spent 2 1/2 hours cooking when you have been beer drinking instead!

    Sounds like a good recipe which I will try.

    Crockpot cooking is awesome. I like to do ribs in mine for 4 or 5 hours on high, which I then take out maybe 1/2 hour before mealtime to broil and baste with Tony Roma's Original BBQ sauce. Good part about crockpot cooking is it cuts down on preparation time because you can toss in potatoes, carrots, beets - go for a quick bike ride, come back and it all comes out tasting delicious.

    This thread is making me hungry.

    My what?
    Here's a hit at my house.

    Dice up your favorite potatoes and put in an oven safe dish. Lightly brush on some olive oil and stir in just enough greek salad dressing to cover each potato. Sprinkle with fresh parmesan and freshly ground pepper. Bake at 400 for an hour or until you're happy with them.
    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

    Unfortunately my wife was not born yesterday and there is no way of fooling her like this. Once she sees slow cooker and empty beer bottles she will know dammit.
