Chili Recipe For the Pressure Cooker

Chili Recipe For the Pressure Cooker

It is that time of year when you need a meal and you need it fast.  So, warm, comfort food is on the menu. Chili can be easily made in your slow cooker which we listed below and you can also make a Chili Recipe For the Pressure Cooker and then served three different ways. Make a big pot of chili and warm up with this homey soup after being out in the snow. Then, use the leftovers to make nachos and chili dogs for the big game.  You can even make Chili cheese dog casserole recipe.

Once you’ve eaten the chili as a soup, take the lid off the slow cooker and leave it on “low”. The chili will cook down and thicken as the liquid evaporates. Use the thick chili as a topping for hot dogs and to make your own nachos. Chili dog toppings to have on hand are spicy mustard, chopped onions, warm sauerkraut, sweet pickle relish, coleslaw, and of course, ketchup.

Making your own nachos is easy; just think layers. On the serving platter, spread tortilla chips evenly. Next, goes your thick, warm chili. Then, shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack, asiago, a mix…your choice). Top the cheese with finely, shredded iceberg lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced black olives, jalapeno slices, dollops of sour cream, and freshly chopped cilantro. This will make a beautiful presentation and guests will gobble it up!

The recipe is the same for both chili recipes, however, the cooking instructions and times will differ.

What to Buy for a Slow Cooker

What to Buy for a Slow Cooker

I was drowning in motherhood. I could barely tell you what day it was. I felt like a failure not like F on a test but the kind of failure that hurts long after the next test. I couldn’t ball up my failure and throw it in the garbage. I had to live with it.

I was a great mother. I fed my baby, stayed up all night caring for the baby, tried to work to provide income for my family with my blog I Make Money Blogging. 

I was failing as a wife. You see my husband would come home from work and he would have to look for food. I can’t tell you how bad I felt that he was eating PB and J for dinner or cereal. I decided I could fix that. I could learn to cook and be a mom and work. I just needed a tool. I bought a Crockpot and I bought the Pressure Cooker XL. Continue reading

Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder Recipe

Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder Recipe

I get a lot of magazines. The one magazine that I love is Family Circle. I got this super Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder recipe that I wanted to share with you.

Here is what I would change. I would use frozen corn. It was difficult to get the corn off the cob when the kids were starving. Our son can’t eat seafood so I took some out of the crockpot for him and his sister before I added the crab. The other thing I would change is I would hide the leftovers from my husband. This soup was yummy!!!!  I hope you enjoy. It cost about $16 but it made two complete meals and a lunch. I could have made it cheaper but I bought the larger can of crab (located in the fresh fish section of your grocery store) instead of the amount the recipe called for.

Easy Corned Beef Recipe

1 Corned beef
1 bottle of stout beer
1/4 cup of brown sugar

Okay so if you need an EASY Corned Beef recipe, this is your lucky day. I grabbed my dutch oven. I turned on the oven to 350 degrees you can also use a crockpot on low to cook the corned beef. They both work. I just forgot about dinner so I had to use my dutch oven. If you use the crockpot it takes about 5 hours.

Once you get out the 3 ingredients, then you need to assemble them.

I opened the corned beef. Then I placed it into the dutch oven. I threw one stout beer on top and 1/4 cup of brown sugar. I placed the lid on the dutch oven. Then I loaded it into the preheated oven. I cooked the meat for 2 1/2 hour. Voila brilliant meal!
