Sweet Potato Basil Soup

It has been almost 3 full weeks since I began my paleo challenge with Crossfit Hook’d. Last night I started feeling as if I were getting a cold, so I decided a freezing Friday afternoon is the perfect day to make a crockpot soup! Soup always makes us feel better, right? I got this recipe from http://paleomg.com/sweet-potato-basil-soup/

2 sweet potatoes, diced
1/2 a yellow onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon dried basil
1, 14 oz. can coconut milk
1 cup organic vegetable broth

Combine all ingredients in your crockpot.
Stir together.
Cook on high for 3 hours.
Add soup to food processor or blender and purée until smooth.
This soup would be delicious served with bacon & sour cream, or some crumbed sausage on top!




White Chicken Chili

Repost! Made this White Chicken Chili for my roommates today in the crockpot! It is so delicious and served all of us, with leftovers!!
This time, I was able to cook it on low for the full 8 hours.
I posted this recipe for the first time in February of last year, and since I did not have many followers back then I thought it was worthy of a repost! Also, since I made it again under a different cooking time, and had new reviews from my roommates, I decided to post again!
*I added some minor changes to the ingredients.

This is my first time making a crockpot chili and I was so excited! I found this recipe on Pinterest, and it comes from :

1 1/2 pounds chicken breast, cut into 1 in. cubes
2- 15 oz. cans white beans, rinsed and drained
1- 15 oz. can white corn, rinsed and drained
1 sweet onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 pckg taco seasoning
2- 4.5 oz. can chopped green chiles
1 can cream of chicken soup
1-15 oz. can reduced sodium chicken broth

Sour cream
Shredded Mexican cheese
Finely Chopped Cilantro
Tortilla Chips

Place cut up chicken in the bottom of the crockpot.
Add beans, corn, and onions to the top of the chicken.
Mix together soup, broth, taco seasoning, chiles, and garlic in a large bowl and pour over chicken and bean mixture.
Cook on low for 8 hours
Top with shredded cheese, sour cream, and cilantro.

Serve with tortilla chips!!



Salsa Chicken

So as you can probably tell…I am obsessed with my crockpot (well…my moms crockpot!)
I went grocery shopping, got dinner in the crockpot, made myself lunch, and got changed for work in 25 minutes…that is why crockpot dinners are the best. Again, I found this recipe on pinterest (another thing I am obsessed with)

4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
1 cup salsa con queso
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup sour cream
6 tortillas

Place chicken in the bottom of your crockpot and sprinkle with taco seasoning.
Mix together salsa and soup in a bowl and pour over chicken.
Cook on high for 4 hours.
Once finished, remove chicken and shred with two forks.
Add sour cream and mix.
Serve on tortillas or as desired 🙂
It’s that easy!!!! And yummy 😉
