This recipe comes from the book, Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes for Two. I got the most adorable new slow cooker...
Isn't it awesome? It was an exclusive at my local Fry's grocery store. I didn't have one in this size so I snatched it up.
This is comfort food without a ton of guilt.
You need some ground turkey or chicken, corn, pasta, onion, olive, chili powder, cumin, tomatoes, garlic and some cheese.
Mince up the garlic.
Chop up the onion and we are ready to cook!
Get the onion and garlic in a pan and cook until its softened.
Add in the chicken and brown it.
Spray the inside of your crockpot with non stick cooking spray and then drop the meat and onions in the crock pot with the tomatoes, spices, salt and pepper. Give it a good stir and set the crock pot on low for 4 hours.
When the four hours are nearly done, boil some water and cook your pasta about halfway done. I am using adorable dog pasta.
Put the pasta in the crock pot with the olives and corn and give it a stir. Let it cook for another hour or so and then top it with some cheese. I told you this was easy.
This was so tasty, and perfect comfort food. I think it also tasted better because it came out of the cutest owl crock pot.
