This is a week with recipes for busy, busy people to just combine ingredients in your slow cooker and come home from work with DINNER DONE!!! These recipes work especially well in winter, because most of the recipes are just great warm comfort foods.
Always be careful handling chili peppers, they are so spicy. Either wear gloves when chopping them or wash your hands right away. Trust me I have made the mistake to wipe my eye first....not pretty!
1 lb sausage, casing removed
1 lb red potatoes chopped
1 sweet onion, chopped
1 green and red pepper chopped
1 jalapeno pepper seeded and chopped
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
3 cloves garlic minced
1/2 tsp pepper
28 oz reduced sodium chicken broth
Shredded sharp cheddar cheese for garnish
Canned shoestring potatoes for garnish
In a saute pan, cook sausage until brown and drain fat. In your slow cooker, combine sausage, potatoes, onion, peppers, cumin, oregano, garlic and pepper. Stir in chicken broth. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.
While hot, top individual servings with cheese and shoestring potatoes. If you want to make fresh potatoes for topping, cut potatoes into matchstick size and cook in canola oil until brown. Remove and salt while they are still hot. Serve with a nice crusty bread.
It's What's for Dinner!
