maple-baked-beans.jpgSweet and savory baked beans slow simmered in the crock pot or on the stove. These beans beat Bush's by a mile, and while they do take a lot more time, there isn't much prep involved. Feel free to change up the proportions of the ingredients according to taste, this is a very forgiving recipe.

4.5 cups cooked navy beans (approx. 2-3 small cans)
1 large sweet onion, diced
3-4 tbsp molasses
3 tbsp maple syrup
3-4 tablespoons regular mustard
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
1-2 cans diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 c. dried cranberries (optional but recommended)

Rinse and drain navy beans or soak and cook dry beans according to package directions. Slow-cooker method: Throw drained and rinsed beans into the slow cooker. Chop the onion and place the onion, molasses, maple syrup, mustard, vinegar, salt, tomatoes, and cranberries (optional) into the slow cooker and stir well. (Alternatively you can also cook these on the stove top or baked in the oven). Cook over high heat for about 4-5 hours (however they can be eaten after just a couple hours of cooking), or cook them on the lowest heat setting for 7-8 hours. Serves 3-4.

Original recipe


white_chicken_chili.jpgThis southwestern chicken soup is spiced like chili but looks more like tortilla soup. Beans, corn, and the typical soup trio of onion, carrots, and celery round out the vegetables, and cilantro and sour cream help brighten the flavors. The recipe makes a ton, but it freezes well and is great to have on hand for cold lazy evenings.

1.5 lb. chicken breast (boneless, skinless), cubed small
1 medium onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 large carrots, chopped
2 cans shoepeg corn (drained)
1 can Rotel
2 cans navy (or northern) beans (1 can drained, 1 undrained)
2 c. low-sodium V8
4 c. chicken broth
1.5 tsp. chili powder
1.5 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp pepper
Garnish:
fresh cilantro
sour cream
Fresh jalapenos, minced
Saute onion, carrots, celery until onion is lightly browned. Add chicken, cook ~ 3 minutes or until chicken is lightly browned. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer for at least 30 minutes. Freezes well.
