Meaty Slow Cooker Jambalaya
This recipe is deeeelicious. The andouille really makes it amazing. I used dark meat chicken instead of breasts. The chicken really should go in about halfway through so it is still tender and flavorful. I didn't have file powder and I didn't want to spend $11 to buy a tiny jar of Sassafras salt so I just left it out. I also didn't have any thyme. I added some ground coriander. I cooked some rice in a pot and served it under the jambalaya. I don't like mixing rice with anything soupy because it doesn't save as well. This recipe is wonderful.

Emily's Chipotle Chili
This is my FAVORITE chili recipe. It's perfect the way it is, but I do like to change it up every now and then. I like to use 1 lb of smoked turkey sausage (cut into tiny pieces) instead of the Italian sausage- that is my effort at making it healthy :) plus, it really does add a little extra texture in there that we enjoy. I use all of the chipotle peppers from a 7 oz can and then add the adobo sauce to the mix. I like to use black beans instead of kidney beans (and I think I usually add 2 cans.) We love garlic so I always add extra cloves. Next time I make it I'm going to add a chopped green pepper. I've used different seasonings each time, but you can do that with this recipe and it's not going to ruin the flavors. I follow the first step by cooking the meat, draining it and adding the spices, onion and garlic, but then I go ahead and put that mixture in the crock pot and add all the other ingredients (except tomato paste) and it works out perfectly. I just don't have the coordination to cleanly pour everything from the Lg. pot to the crock pot. I sometimes cheat and do step 1 the night before and refrigerate the meat mixture so I can get up the next morning and just throw everything together and start cooking it before going to work. This is a wonderful recipe if you aren't looking for standard chili. Thanks, Emily!

Grandma's Chicken Chardon
Very tasty. Some people said to use Italian bread crumbs, but I didn't have any so I used regular with some Italian seasoning. I also added just a few thin slices of onion mixed in with twice the amount of mushrooms.
