we tried a new crock pot recipe today, courtesy of martha stewart: slow-cooked tex-mex chicken and beans (http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/slow-cooked-tex-mex-chicken-and-beans). while we were off playing in the park, the slow cooker was hard at work cooking up a delicious dinner.
it was delicious, though we improvised when we couldn’t find the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. the kids probably couldn’t have handled the heat anyway, so it all worked out. our finished product didn’t look any different than martha’s either, which is always a good thing.
