Great recipes!

One of my favorite easy crock pot recipes (if you even want to call it a recipe) is to get a pork shoulder, trim the fat off of it, put it in the crockpot with a bottle of barbeque sauce, slice up an onion and throw it on top of the concoction, and then cook it on high for 6 hours. Once it's done, shred the pork with a fork and serve it on healthy buns (we use Arnold Sandwich Thins) and a salad. Really easy and tasty and it reheats well for sandwiches the next day.

You can serve it over rice or put it in a fat free tortilla with some l. f. cheese. It's thicker the second day and sometimes I use it for veggie dip.

1 (16 oz. bag) dry black beans
1 pint salsa
1 ( 15 oz. tomato sauce
1 (15oz.) can diced tomatoes
2 onions, chopped
1 Tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed

Wash and sort beans. Put in crock pot. Add water to cover. Add rest of ingredients. You should have a full (3 1/2 quart )crockpot. Cover and cook low 20-24 hours. High, 15 hours. If you use high, stir occasionally. Master cook calculates this as 12 cups, 150 cal, 1 fat, 7 fiber each cup.
I made this recipe and added chicken breast to it. We ate it last night and tonight. My son and I absolutely loved it. He added hot sauce to it, but I liked it just the way it was. Thank you for the recipe!!!!

PREP TIME 15 Min
COOK TIME 15 Min
READY IN 3 Hrs

INGREDIENTS
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes
2 cloves garlic
5 small onions, cut into 2 inch pieces
2 red bell peppers, cut into 2 inch pieces skewers

DIRECTIONS
In a large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, soy sauce, and pepper. Before
adding chicken, reserve a small amount of marinade to brush onto kabobs
while cooking. Place the chicken, garlic, onions and peppers in the bowl,
and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours (the longer the better).
Preheat the grill for high heat.
Drain marinade from the chicken and vegetables, and discard marinade. Thread
chicken and vegetables alternately onto the skewers.
Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the skewers on the grill. Cook for 12 to
15 minutes, until chicken juices run clear. Turn and brush with reserved
marinade frequently.

I know I am late, but I just found this thread. I cannot wait to try several of the recipes. I love black bean soup, so this will be the first one I will try.
Thank you all for posting these!
