The crockpot.  Also known as the slow cooker.  A beautiful countertop cooking appliance that allows you to throw miscellaneous foods inside in the morning, let them simmer all day long, and have a mouth watering meal by dinner time.  This magical machine does all the work for you… college kids love finding machines that do the work for them.

My first experiment with the crockpot turned out to be a major success.  I’ve actually made it twice this week… Get this: Juicy fall-off-the-bone chicken, smoky chorizo sausage, tender sweet potatoes, and sweet garlicky tomatoes all melded into the most scrumptious of hearty stews.  This magic can be all yours with a crockpot… and those ingredients I mentioned up there…

1 yellow onion, chopped

2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped

1 pack bone in chicken thighs

1 pack chicken drumsticks

2 large chorizo sausages, crumbled

2 cans petite diced tomatoes

salt, pepper, and dried basil

Throw chopped onions, sweet potatoes, chorizo, and chicken in your crockpot.  Season with some chopped garlic, salt, pepper, and dried basil.  Pour tomatoes overtop and cook on low for 6 hours.  You could also cook it for 4 hours on high if you are tight on time.

I ate my stew with some crispy asparagus, but I’ve had it with kale, broccoli, insert delicious green veggie here.
