I Roux the Day

Yesterday I spent a seemingly interminable time at a local Super Wal-Mart. When did Wal-Mart stop having the lowest prices on things? It seems that many food items (especially those with generics available) can now be bought for less at Kroger. In any case, I bought some food items in addition to kitty litter and other dry goods.

After I finally reached the house, I cooked three bean soup with black, kidney, and navy beans, bacon, onion, and jalapenos. To the large crock pot, I added:

five cups water
two pounds of chicken
1 pound sausage
ten jalapenos
1 1/2 onion
1 bell pepper
2 cans of tomatoes (1 can cubed, 1 can stewed)
six chicken bullion cubes

after several hours on high heat, I added two cups of rice, and spices. I turned all the way down to warm before getting my three hours of sleep.

I just had some stew for breakfast. Mmm, mmm! Good.

Between this recipe and LawDog's guacamole, I'm going to be gaining weight. Thanks for posting this, John.

It's actually fairly healthy, depending on your choice of chicken and sausage. I used Lite Turkey sausage...
