Brian's Texas Style Chili Con Carne

Slow cookers aren't just for grandmothers. On a busy day, who doesn't love to come home in the evening to a hot already-prepared meal? Whether it's a succulent pot roast, savory tender chicken or a simple casserole, slow cookers create amazing aromas and even better meals - and many slow cooker recipes make enough food to feed your entire family (and then some).The vegetarian crock pot retains almost all the nutrients of food, yet produces a spicy and savory dish. This cooking appliance is ideal for people struggling to become vegetarians. The heavenly flavor of vegetarian crock pot recipes can effectively make them forget meat. You can successfully switch to a complete vegetarian diet with food cooked in a slow cooker.The Polish fix beef short ribs in a sauce made with bacon, onions, and caraway seeds. Texas short ribs are a different thing all together. "The Complete Round the World Meat Cook Book" by Myra Waldo contains a recipe for Texas short ribs made with bottled chili sauce. The book also has a recipe for deviled short ribs.I ordered the cheese enchilada dinner with chili gravy and rice and beans. I have never heard of chili gravy and just assumed it meant crockpot chili. I was wrong. When they brought my food out I thought they mistakenly put queso on my enchiladas instead of chili so instead of returning the food I requested a bowl of chili. They brought out a bowl of the same looking cheese sauce. Not really sure what it was. Perhaps it was chili as in chili pepper? Overall, the enchiladas didn't taste that bad. The rice was very good, but the refried beans were oversalted. So much so that they were not edible.The size of the crock pot depends on the size of your family. For a big family, a 4-6 quart pot is ideal. For just a couple of people, a one quart pot is best to prepare slow cooked chili recipes. Choose a cooker with multiple settings and other features like a timer, automatic shut-off, or a warmer. Such features prove to be quite helpful for people who remain outdoors for 8 to 10 hours. There are cookers that feature digital temperature reading or temperature gauge. It ensures that the pot maintains a safe temperature for cooking food. This cuts off the risk of illnesses related to over-cooking or under-cooking food.You could use a theme for the custom cookbook. It could be a book of breakfast recipes or a book of dessert recipes. You could make it a style of cooking, say a book of barbecue recipes or slow cooker chili. There are a lot of Asian recipes out there so it could be based on that type of theme as well.Cut and soften vegetables: Some vegetables (eg carrots, onions, potatoes) take longer to cook than meat. If the recipe combines any of these vegetables with meat, place the vegetables at the bottom of the cooker and then add the meat. Remember to thinly cut the vegetables according to the exact specifications of the recipe. It is recommended that you soften (brown, saute) vegetables (eg onions and carrots) before cooking: you will notice a whole lot of difference in both appearance and taste!Having a few basic recipes on hand is great. Unfortunately, the same recipes can get old. A cookbook that offers a large selection of recipes is essential for college students. Look for books that have breakfast, side dish, dessert, main course, snack, and several other categories. The more the college student chili con carne cheese enchiladas eat at home, the more money they'll save.
