This was quite nice, if not the most authentic take on the dish I’ve ever had. I’m always looking for new slow cooker recipes.

I really loved this recipe from John. Have used the leftover meat in quesadillas, in breakfast burritos. It smells really spicy when you cook it but turns out flavorful but not all that hot. Spice fans might want to add some jalapeno peppers, etc.
This is probably my favorite attempt at a non tomato-based chili. It was good for using up some tomatillos. My friend Angela provided the recipe, which I tweaked slightly here and there.
So apparently I made this recipe two years ago but didn’t remember it. Anyway, some notes.
*I used chicken sausage rather than duck sausage this time, and prefer it.
*My main issue with this recipe is the broccoli rabe, which gets overcooked in the crockpot, and tastes a little funky as a result. Next time, I’d substitute spinach or something for the rabe.
Take the cooking time on these beans with a grain of salt. I cooked them for the recommended 2 hours or so and they weren’t done. So I cooked them overnight in the crockpot on low. There’s probably a better way, but eh.
I’m not 100 percent sold on this recipe. It’s not bad, but there’s a slight sourness I can’t put my finger on – maybe I used too much lemon juice, or the escarole overwhelmed things a bit.
It’s also soupier than I expected, though this may have to do with the fact that I adapted it for the crock pot. So it’s worth trying, but needs a little tinkering.
When thinking of veg lunch ideas, vegetarian chili seemed like a no-brainer. So I made some overnight on Sunday in the crockpot. The result was good, but I feel like the flavor is lacking a little something. And hopefully that something isn’t merely “meat” and I can think of a way to compensate.
Here’s this year’s leftover turkey recipe. Since we didn’t host, all we ended up taking home is a cup of turkey meat, which I turned into this simple soup.
Enough Cs for you there? Anyway, this dish was inspired by this Serious Eats recipe. The recipe looked good, but was honestly kind of weird (what’s with the microwave step?) I thought it might adapt to the crockpot fairly well (which would eliminate the microwaving anyway) and lo and behold, it worked out perfectly. Great complexity of flavor, extremely filling. And low in points, too. The chicken turns out super tender.
