My absolute favorite...2 cans of black beans drained and rinsed; 1 to 2 cans of corn, drained; I jar of mild or medium salsa; (you can add other veggies if you like...I sometimes do but sometimes just leave it like this). Stir it all up in the pot. Put in a few chicken breasts and turn on high. I am lazy and hate to dethaw my chicken, so it usually takes about 7 hours with frozen chicken....less for dethawed chiken. (I always cook "by ear" so I couldn't possibly tell you exact times.) Once the chicken is cooked thoroughly, I like to cut up or shred my chicken and stir it back into everything...but you can also eat the breasts whole. I serve it with brown rice. To add some extra cruch and zing...dress it up with some crunchy baked tortillas, some fat-free sour cream or yogurt, some shredded cheese. My husband and kids love this meal.

I cook a whole chicken which i cover with lemon slices and fresh basil leaves. You can add vegetables around the chicken if you wish but I prefer to cook them separately.
I also make chili:
- tomato sauce (about 2 big cans)
-ground beef (pork or turkey) (1to 1.5 pounds)
-some kidney beans (2 cans)
-diced carrots and celery
I don't add salt since canned beans already contain some even when rinsed and adding more salt tends to make the beans hard. You can eat it on it's own, with pasta, on a bun, etc.

A crockpot, also called a slow cooker, is an on counter cooker. You throw in whatever you're cooking and leave it, usually for around 8 hours, and you've got dinner without the end of the day rush. If you buy one I'd make sure you get one where the inside comes out, makes it easier to clean. They also cost alot less to run than the oven and don't heat up the house, which is a plus in the summertime. I love my crockpot.

one of my favorites is no peak beef, you add what you like such as veg's
2 lbs of beef stew mix
1 package of lipton onion soup mix
2 cans of cream soup (ex. cream of mushroom, celery, chicken)
put everything in the pot set on low for 6-8 hrs
this makes a thick brown gravy and you can serve it over noodles or potatoes. if you like sour cream add right before you are ready to serve it and serve it over noodles adding mushrooms and you have beef strog.
you can add carrots, potatoes, or mix veg;s also. mix and match try what you like.
