(As always, if using any of these recipes for a gluten free diet, check all your ingredients to make sure they’re gluten free!)
BBQ Chicken Nachos
Place 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the crock pot, cover with a 1/2 a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce and cook on low for 4-5 hours. (Any longer makes the meat too dry.)
Shred meat with a fork and place on tortilla chips. Top with colby jack or cheddar cheese and broil in the oven until cheese is melted.
(If using this as a gluten free recipe, make sure your chips are gluten free!)
White Chicken Chili
2 cups shredded cooked chicken

1/2 tsp. each garlic powder, onion powder, cumin
1 Tbs. chili powder
1 tsp. hot sauce.
Combine ingredients and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
1 lb. browned ground beef (I pre-cook mine and have it in the freezer)
(2-3) 14.5 oz. cans kidney beans (I also pre-cook these and freeze them)
(2) 28 oz. cans diced tomatoes
14.5 oz. can tomato sauce (I often use leftover spaghetti sauce)
2 Tbs. chili powder
1 Tbs. cumin
1 Tbs. garlic salt
Combine all ingredients and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Sweet and Sour Kielbasa
1 cup brown sugar
3 Tbs. spicy brown mustard
2 lbs. smoked fully cooked kielbasa, cut into 1″ pieces.
Combine brown sugar and mustard in 3-4 quart crock pot; add kielbasa, and stir to evenly coat. Cover crock pot and cook on low-heat 2-1/2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally, until kielbasa is thoroughly heated and glazed.
