I am craving spicy prob on a med level and would love to get some good recipes they don't have to be for a crockpot but I really enjoy using mine.
Thanks I don't eat olives...
So sorry I don't really have a recipe for you, BUT, some search suggestions:
1. Crock Pot Barbacoa.
2. Web up whatever crock pot recipe, and add an amount of chile pepper that makes sense to you. For a Medium ish heat, dried/ground Ancho chile, plus a little jalapeno or serrano, and maybe a chipotle in adobo or two can be added to almost anything. Beef Stew, Pork Stew, a pot of beans..etc.
3. Crock Pot Carne Adobada (or adovada)
4. Soup with some extra kick from Chile pepper.
Slow Cooker Tamale Pie - to make it spicy use spicy salsa
3/4 c yellow cornmeal
1 c beef broth
1 lb extra lean ground beef (can make with ground turkey) browned
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
14-16 oz jar thick and chunky salsa
16 oz black beans (or somepeople use corn I find the corn redundant because of the cornmeal)
1/4 c sliced ripe olizes
2 ounces shredded cheese.
In a large bowl, mix cornmeal adn broth, let stand 5 min. stir in beef, chili powder cusmin salsa beans adn olives. Pour into crockpot. Cook low 5-7 hours until set. Sprinkle cheese over cover cook another 5 mins. NOTE - ii've also left out the meat and used more beans and it comes out good.
Red beans and rice
1 lb dried kidney beans, sorted, rinsed
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
- for spicier throw in some diced hot peppers
1 large onion chopped
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
7 c water
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 c uncooked instant rice
red pepper sauce (tabasco etc)
mix all ingredients except rice and pepper sauce. cover cook on high 4-5 hrs or until beans are tender. stir in rice, cover and cook on high 15-20 mins or until rice is tender. serve with tabasco.
I'm assuming you could maybe use regular rice but use more water. but I've never tried it that way.
How about chili? You can make that as spicy as you wish...also, here's a link to a website that offers a crockpot recipe for each day of the year...she offers Asian and Mexican recipes and others...I've tried the Indian eggplant one and it was very good, haven't tried anything else yet:
I just made posole in the crockpot today. Start with a 4-5 lb pork butt. Bone the butt and cut into stew-sized chunks. Brown in a little oil, and put in the crock. Add a small can of red chile sauce (or enchilada sauce), and about a canful of water, too. If you want it spicier, add some cayenne at this point. Cover, and set on high. After about 4 hours, add a large can of hominy, and adjust seasonings (I find I usually need to add a little salt). Let cook for another hour. Serve with shredded cabbage, diced onions, minced radish, cilantro, and corn tortillas.
Here is one of my favs:
Slice up a big sweet onion and a green pepper and put in the crockpot. Toss in a few cloves of garlic, chopped up or not. Put 6-8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs in and season with salt, pepper, and some cumin. Pour in a can of good chopped tomatos that you have mixed up with as much chipolte adobo as you like and cook on low for about 6 hours. I somtimes use my dried chipolte powder instead of the the canned in abodo and that works great, too.
Here is my favorite slow cooker coconut lentil soup recipe. It asks for hot sauce, I use hot chili pepper instead. I add the chili with the coconut milk. I wonder if it is better to add the pepper earlier to make it spicier? do the flavors of chili mellow as they cook? You can easily add as much spice to this dish as you want, the coconut milk will blend it all together.
PS.there is a mistake on the recipe...cut the carrots into coins, also ground cumin(about 1tsp) is what I use.
