Chipotle Chicken Stew

You may have seen me mention a time or two, about cooking this stew.  I've been craving it lately, and have made it (or another slight variation, to come) just about every Sunday.  I make a double batch, and then I have food for lunch all week long.  I haven't gotten sick of it, it's (kind of) healthy, and it is very hearty.  Scott also likes it- and he likes that I pack my lunch every day for work when I've made it, so he tries to stay out of it so I have enough for the week!

This is the exact recipe I use- found here.  However, mine is from a printed Crock Pot recipe box set (affiliate link)

Aside from doubling everything to make more, I also add a few chopped garlic cloves and a handful of mushrooms.

I use Tyson frozen chicken tenderloins without cubing (a whole bag, when doubling).  About 30 minutes before it's done cooking, I take them out and shred them.  It helps with the chicken-to-bean ratio.

I add mozzarella cheese to melt on the top of the serving, as well as some crushed pita chips (I have only found these at Publix), and a scoop of sour cream.   It's quite spicy if you don't add some of these "coolers" to it!

  2. Hahaha I haven't even looked at the healthiness- it's just so tasty! It also probably loses some points once I smother it with cheese and sour cream! :)

  5. Yeah, the normal recipe says it makes 6 servings, but I only get about 3 (I think my serving size is a little bigger!) The round bowl is over full, and I'll divide it by at least two more days of work. May have a little left for dinner tonight!

  6. Seriously, I have been making this so much that I've almost used an entire jar of cumin. I don't think I've ever actually used all of a spice before! That also may be because I forget what I have for spices when I'm at the store, so buy more "just in case."

  10. This sounds so good! Saving it to make soon... because if there's any cooking that's getting done in my house right now, there's about a 95% chance it's in the crockpot!

  11. Yes! Because all it takes for me to NOT bring lunch, is to not have time in the morning to scoop it into a tupperware!!

  12. Hahah my odds are about 75%! The 25% is when the husband cooks!!

    This looks so yummy & it's perfect for nights when I have class from 5 AM-8 PM and won't feel like cooking anything when I get home, I'll be able to just curl up with a comforting bowl of soup! Thanks for sharing!
