Recipes for Runners on the Go!

24 Hour Black Bean Crockpot Soup

I love the smell of this soup. You can put it together fast. I don't pre-soak the beans. Just wash and sort. This makes a thick soup and I freeze the extra. You can serve it over rice or put it in a fat free tortilla with some l. f. cheese. It's thicker the second day and sometimes I use it for veggie dip.

1 (16 oz. bag) dry black beans
1 pint salsa
1 ( 15 oz. tomato sauce
1 (15oz.) can diced tomatoes
2 onions, chopped
1 Tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed

Wash and sort beans. Put in crock pot. Add water to cover. Add rest of ingredients. You should have a full (3 1/2 quart )crockpot. Cover and cook low 20-24 hours. High, 15 hours. If you use high, stir occasionally. Master cook calculates this as 12 cups, 150 cal, 1 fat, 7 fiber each cup.

Corn, Ham and Potato Scallop

6 cups peeled baking potatoes -- cut in 1" cubes
1 1/2 cups cubed cooked ham
1 15.25oz. can Green Giant Whole Kernel Sweet Corn -- drained
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 teaspoons instant minced onion
1 10 3/4oz.can condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

In 3 1/2 to 4-quart Crock-Pot slow cooker, combine potatoes, ham, corn, bell pepper and onion; mix well. In small bowl, combine soup, milk and flour; beat with wire whisk until smooth. Pour soup mixture over potato mixture; stir gently to mix. Cover; cook on low setting for 7-9 hours or until potatoes are tender.

Info: Potatoes cook more quickly when cut into small pieces; cubed potatoes will cook faster than quartered potatoes. The 1-inch chunks of potato in our recipe work well as they do not get too soft during the long cooking time. Also, leftover cooked roast beef or turkey can be used in place of the ham.

These need sides, but they are so quick and easy:

Pork tenderloin - Add a can of chicken broth and simmer all day. Pre-spiced ones are very good

Dill Roast -
2 lb roast
med. onion
2 tsp dill
2 cups water

Creamy Beef:
1 pound stewing beef
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 can water
1 pack Lipton Onion Soup mix

Serve over rice or noodles.

Great recipes!

I have a book that I love, Desperation Dinners by Beverly Mills and Alicia Ross. Everything's ready in 30 minutes, even if you forget to set something out ahead of time to thaw They have another book, called "Cheap, Fast, Good" that I got not too long ago. I've also been getting Cooking Light magazine for years...my absolute favorite!
