    Chicken Fajitas
    7 boned and skinned chicken breast halves -- cut in strips
    2 onions -- sliced
    2 green bell peppers -- cut in strips
    2 red bell peppers -- cut in strips
    2 jalapeno chile pepper -- chopped
    4 cloves garlic -- minced
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    2 teaspoons ground coriander
    28 ounces tomatoes, canned
    1/4 cup water
    8 flour tortillas

    Combine all ingredients in crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Serve with salsa.
    Pork Chops A La Orange
    4 loin pork chops, bone in or boneless, 3/4 - 1" thick
    1/2 - 3/4 small can orange juice concentrate
    1 10 oz can double strength chicken broth
    1 large onion sliced into thick rings
    1/2 c raisins
    1/2 - 3/4 small bag 'baby' carrots
    1 soup can of dry white wine (or more broth or water)
    1t curry powder
    1/4 c brown sugar (or can use honey)
    1T lemon juice
    1/2t chopped garlic
    Enough additional water or broth to cover the chops

    Brown the chops in a skillet. Set aside. Saute onion in drippings until softened and slightly brown. Add garlic and brown lightly. Put carrots in the bottom of the crockpot. Top with onions and then the chops.

    Pour off any grease in the frypan, if any, and then add soup to hot frypan and scrape up all the brown drippings on the bottom of the pan. Pour this into the crockpot also. Add all remaining ingredients and cook on high for 3-4 hrs or low for 2-2.5 times as long or until the chops are tender.

    When the meat is tender, taste the sauce and adjust seasonings to suit. If it is not flavorfull enough you may wish to simmer for a while to reduce. Once the flavor is to your liking, you may wish to add a tablespoon of cornstarch or arrowroot at the end and let the sauce thicken a bit.

    You could substitute chicken breasts or thighs or even turkey parts for the pork in this recipe. This is great surved with stuffing or rice or couscous on the side and a green vegetable or salad.

    Cranberry Pork Roast

    1 (2.5 pound) boneless rolled pork loin roast (any pork roast will do)
    1 (16 ounce) can jellied cranberry sauce
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup cranberry juice
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
    1/4 teaspoon ground cloves (I don't use this)
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    2 tablespoons cold water
    salt to taste

    1 Place pork roast in a slow cooker. In a medium bowl,
    mash cranberry sauce; stir in sugar, cranberry juice,
    mustard and cloves. Pour over roast. Cover and cook on low for
    6-8 hours or until meat is tender.
    2 Remove roast and keep warm. Skim fat from juices;
    measure 2 cups, adding water if necessary, and pour into a
    saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
    3 Combine the cornstarch and cold water to make a paste;
    stir into gravy. Cook and stir until thickened. Season with
    salt. Serve with sliced pork.

    This is absolutely my favorite way to have pork roast. It is so moist and the gravy is slighlyt sweet and savory. I have to admit I was a little skeptical but gave it a try anyway and boy, am I ever glad I did.

    I serve this with mashed potatoes. I mash the potatoes using sour cream, cream cheese, and a little garlic powder instead of milk.

    slow cooker chicken paprikash

    POINTS | 4
    Servings | 4

    1 serving cooking spray (5 one-second sprays per serving), or enough to coat skillet
    2 cup mushroom(s), coarsely chopped
    1 small onion(s), chopped
    1 small garlic clove(s), minced
    1 small sweet red pepper(s), diced
    1 tsp paprika
    3/4 tsp table salt
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1/2 cup canned chicken broth
    1 pound uncooked chicken breast, boneless and skinless
    1 tbsp all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup fat-free sour cream


    Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat. Add mushrooms, onion, garlic and pepper; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in paprika, salt and pepper; cook 30 seconds more. Spoon mixture into a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker; add broth.

    Cut each chicken breast into 4 long strips; add to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low setting for 5 to 6 hours.

    Stir together flour and sour cream in a cup; stir into chicken mixture. (Note: We stir flour into the sour cream to prevent the cream from curdling in slow-cooked dishes.) Cover and cook on low until the mixture is thick and hot, about 10 minutes more. Yields about 2 cups per serving.

    Stovie Toties (this is a traditional Scottish recipe)
    i've heard its actually meant to be cooked as a stew but perhaps it was cooked more thinly as a soup by my Mum and grandmother because when they left Scotiland it was 1949 and they were still living post war over there. They would have made everything stretch as much as possible. But it is beautiful anyway.

    You put in 4 carrots (peeled and chopped or sliced) 4 potatos, 1 swede, 1 parsnip, split peas (as many as you like) and celery (a couple of sticks chopped). Also add a bacon hock and fill with water. You may need to halve the ingredients as this makes a lot and it depends how big your pot is. Normally you'd let it come to the boil and then simmer for 1 1/2-2hrs but with the slow cooker if you just leave it for the day or overnight it turns out perfect. My mother eats it without the bacon (she puts the bacon to cook and it adds some flavour but then she takes the hock out before eating). I on the other hand cook it with the whole hock in just as my mother does and then at the end I take the bacon off the bone into the soup and eat - yum!
