Dishing It Up Recipe Hop



I am so pleased to present to you the Dishing it Up recipe hop along with this fine group of ladies:  Thrifty Texas Penny, Mama's Money Tree, Deals From Ms. Do, Saving Myself Silly, Dearly Domestic, 20 Something Saver, The Happy Lil' Homemaker, and Eating With MiMi.

This month we will be looking at crock pot (or slow cooker, whichever term you prefer) recipes.  Did you realize that for the most part, anything you cook in a crock pot, you can cook in a Dutch oven?  Using the "low" and "high" settings as guidelines, you can cook longer at 200F or slightly shorter at 300F in a traditional oven.  If you are so inclined then you could also use these recipes with a Dutch oven in a camp fire while camping . 

Here in Texas we take our chili very seriously; it is our state dish after all.  I love chili in all its variations so my contribution is very much a variation on the traditional bowl of red.  I know this is going to be a shock for some and potentially offensive to others but there is no meat in this chili; its base is sweet potatoes.  I apologize for any confusion or upset - but I don't apologize for the chili.  :)

  1. Thanks for stopping by - and YES, I totally love chili in the crockpot. I have learned to love and appreciate the crockpot for all the dinnertime sanity it saves. ;)
