So, this isn't a Pinterest recipe. Things have been a little crazy, so I've been slacking on trying new things. BUT! I still have an awesome recipe for you.
This is a potnasty creation. You read that right: potnasty. Basically, that's when you throw a bunch of stuff in a pot a hope for the best. In this case, we got what we hoped for.
The only thing with potnasty is there's no specific measurements, so you kinda have to eye it.
For this, I wanted enough to last me and Bear a few days, so I threw 4 chicken breasts in the bottom of the crock pot with about 4 tbs of olive oil, just enough to keep it from sticking. I added some pepper, a good coat of paprika, a few dashes of chili powder, and a decent amount of cumin. I told you, potnasty. If I had to guess, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tbs paprika, 1/2 tbs chili powder, and 1 tbs cumin. I then added about half a box (2 cups) of chicken broth and set the crock pot to high.
After about 4 hours, the chicken falls apart! So I shredded it with a couple forks. I diced up a large onion and a couple of bell peppers, minced several cloves of garlic, and threw all of that in the crock pot. I added about a cup of sliced mushrooms, 1 can of navy beans, 1 can of black beans, and a drained can of corn (I did not drain the beans). I topped it off with the remaining chicken broth. Popped the lid back on and waited. Which was hard, because it smelled AWESOME.
And it was. Even more so the next day. In fact, we both almost ate it for breakfast.
I guess it could technically be called soup, because it wasn't very thick. However, you could easily add a few tablespoons of corn starch to thicken it when you add all of the veggies.
Try it out and tell me what you think! Also, does your family have any potnasty recipes? Share them in the comments!
